The History of Japan.
Second edition revised. London. King. 1875. 2 volumes. Volume I: 1853 to 1864 with a Sketch of Earlier Periods. Attractive folding plan of Kioto frontispiece, folding plan The Emperor's Palace at Kioto, folding black and white map of Japan at rear. Short repaired tear in border of both plans not affecting image. Volume II: Folding map of Japan frontis somewhat carelessly folded, with a short closed tear along one fold, full page plan library stamped. xiv356pp. Both volumes bound in worn, but still sound, half goat binding. Marbled endpapers, neat 19th century Inner Temple Library bookplate front pastedowns, small rather attractive stamps on prelims and occasionally in text. Gilt library insignia at foot of spine of each volume. Text is very clean and sound. A good ex-library set. These two volumes cover Japanese history from its earliest times to 1871, but the strength of the work is the detailed account it gives of Japanese affairs and Japan's relations with the West between 1853 - 1871. The earlier history is covered briefly in 100 pages and provides the context only for the majority of the work which covers this most fascinating of times when the Edo period was giving way to the Meiji.
