Description:

Rutgers University, New Brunswick, 1964,us first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 8 1/2, VG/VG- ( dj priced clipped, light edge wear, and prev. owner's name on front fly ), xviii, 247 pages, a few illus, index.---------------------------------------------------------------------------This book is the first translation into English of the journal of Henry Heusken, who was the secretary to Townsend Harris, the first American Consul-General in Japan.Heusken kept his journal from October 25, 1855, when he sailed from New York, until shortly before his assassination by Japanese extremists. Because of his facility in several languages and his sensitivity to Japanese customs, Heusken became a useful and popular member of the foreign community. His accounts of events as Japan prepared to end its isolationism, to open the country to trade with the West, is both fresh and rewarding in itself and a valuable complement to the writings of Commodore Perry and Townsend Harris.His observations have special interest in that Heusken was able to describe the negotiations as a participant, which he was, and at the same time report his impressions from the more objective point of view of a third party or quasi-observer.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The book can also be enjoyed as a perceptive and entertaining record of what it was like to travel to strange ports, to discover the remarkable customs of other countries in the days when foreigners were not welcome, when there was time for extended formalities before business, and when the keeping of a diary or journal was primarily a gentlemanly pastime.Heusken's journal constitutes a major addition to the primary source material on this period of Japanese-American relations and history.The editors have provided helpful annotations about the political background of Japan.
