9781331389675: Kinsť Shiriaku (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Kinsé Shiriaku

For the literary merits of the work there is little to be said. It is composed in imitation of the terse style of the Chinese annalists, and is therefore almost incapable of being rendered at once literally and into idiomatic English. Freedom of translation, where the object does not happen to be the illustration of native modes of expression, is always advisable, especially if the idea of the original is thereby more correctly conveyed, and it may be as well to warn students of the language that they must not expect to find here an instrument to aid them in the dissection of Japanese (or rather Chinese) syntax.

Dates on which events occurred are often stated vaguely in the original, the month only being usually given. As the Japanese months seldom coincide with those of the Gregorian calendar (which has only been adopted since the commencement of the current year) it has seemed prefer able to translate literally in this instance and to give in brackets the Gregorian dates which correspond to the beginning and end of each month. The precise day, where possible, has been supplied in footnotes from the Genji Yume-monogatari (g. Y. Parliamentary Papers and other sources.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 160 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.3in.Excerpt from Kins ShiriakuThis compilation commences with the arrival of the American squadron in 1853 and ends with the taking of Hakodate in 1869. I have found slight discrepancies in the various accounts of this period which I have seen, and have endeavoured to arrive at the truth by consulting them impartially. I have no doubt, however, that more learned persons than myself will be able to discover mistakes and obscurities in what I have put together in this way, and I shall be grateful for their suggestions. Public documents and memorials are often of unnecessary length. I have therefore been careful to abridge them as much as possible, so as not to fatigue my reader. An old axiom says that a historian is worthless unless he possesses native talent, learning and wisdom. As I cannot lay claim to any one of these qualifications, there is no doubt that in thus rashly taking up my pen, I expose myself to the accusation of having attempted what is beyond my powers. But there are few complete and authentic histories of modern events. In the one or two works which do exist, the authors have either omitted everything which they thought likely to give offence, or have made their relation so obscure as to render it impossible to understand clearly what the real course of events has been. For this reason I have disregarded my own unfitness for the task, and have recorded summarily what has taken place for the use of those who may hereafter wish to write upon this subject.
