Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 254 x 203 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This classic travel book details Isabella Bird s 1878 trip, where she set out alone to explore the interior of Japan - a rarity not only because of Bird s sex but because the country was virtually unknown to Westerners. The Japan she describes is not the sentimental world of Madame Butterfly but a vibrant land of real people with a complex culture and hardscrabble lives.Isabella Lucy Bird, married name Bishop FRGS (15 October 1831 – 7 October 1904), was a nineteenth-century English explorer, writer,photographer and naturalist.With Fanny Jane Butler she founded the John Bishop Memorial hospital in Srinagar.She was the first woman to be elected Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.Bird was born on 15 October 1831 at Boroughbridge Hall, Yorkshire, the home of her maternal grandmother. Her parents were Rev Edward Bird BA (1794-1858) and his second wife, Dora Lawson (1803-1866).Boroughbridge was her father s first curacy after taking orders in 1830, and it was here he met Dora.Bird moved several times during her childhood. In 1832, Reverend Bird was appointed curate in Maidenhead, where Isabella s brother Edward was born and died in his first year. Because of her father s ill health Bird s family moved again in 1834 to Tattenhall in Cheshire, a living presented to him by his cousin Dr John Bird Sumner, Bishop of Chester, where in the same year Bird s sister, Henrietta, was born.Bird was outspoken from an early age. When six years old, she confronted the local MP for South Cheshire: Sir Malpas de Grey Tatton Egerton, while he was campaigning, asking him did you tell my father my sister was so pretty because you wanted his vote? Edward Bird s controversial views against Sunday labour caused his congregation to dwindle, and in 1842 he requested a transfer to St. Thomas s in Birmingham. Here again objections were raised which culminated in the minister s being pelted with stones, mud, and insults .In 1848, the family moved again and, after spending some time in Eastbourne, took up residence in Wyton in Huntingdonshire (now Cambridgeshire.)From early childhood Bird was frail, suffering from a spinal complaint, nervous headaches, and insomnia. The doctor recommended an open-air life, and consequently, Bird learned to ride in infancy, and later to row. Her only education came from her parents: her father was a keen botanist, and Isabella studied flora with him, and her mother taught her daughters an eclectic mix of subjects. Isabella became an avid reader.However, her bright intelligence, [and] an extreme curiosity as to the world outside, made it impossible for her brain and her nature generally to be narrowed and stiffened by the strictly evangelical atmosphere of her childhood .Bird s first publication was at the age of 16, a pamphlet addressing Free Trade v Protectionism after which she continued writing articles for various periodicals.In 1850, a fibrous tumour was removed from the neighbourhood of the spine . Bird continued to be unwell, suffering from unspecified ailments resulting in lassitude and insomnia. The family spent six summers in Scotland in an effort to improve her health.Doctors urged a sea voyage and in 1854 Bird s life of travelling began when the opportunity arose for her to sail to the United States accompanying her second cousins to their family home. Her father gave her [£]100 and leave to stay away as long as it lasted . Bird s bright descriptive letters written home to her relations formed the basis for her first book, An Englishwoman in America (1856),published by Murray. John Murray, as well as being Isabella s lifelong publisher, . [became] one of her closest friends. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781540507594

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Unbeaten Tracks in Japan, Vol. 2 of 2: An Account of Travels on Horseback in the Interior; Including Visits to the Aborigines of Yezo and the Shrines of Nikko and Ise Separated from the main island of Japan by the Tsugaru Strait, and from Saghalien by the narrow strait of La Perouse, in shape an irregular triangle, extending from long. 139 50 E. to long. 146 E., and from lat. 41 30 N. to lat. 45 30 N., its most northern point considerably south of the Land s End, Yezo has a climate of singular severity, a heavy snowfall, and, in its northern parts, a Siberian winter. Its area is 35,739 square miles, or considerably larger than that of Ireland, while its estimated population is only 123,000. The island is a mountain mass, with plains well grassed and watered. Impenetrable jungles and impassable swamps cover much of its area. It has several active volcanoes, and the quietude of some of its apparently extinct ones is not to be relied upon. Its forests and swamps are drained by innumerable short, rapid rivers, which are subject to violent freshets. In riding round the coast they are encountered every two or three miles, and often detain the traveller for days on their margins. The largest is the Ishkari, famous for salmon. The coast has few safe harbours, and though exempt from typhoons, is swept by heavy gales and a continuous surf.
