A fine set.Lafcadio Hearn (1850-1904), American journalist and author, "is noted for the poetic prose style of his exotic and fantastic tales; he dedicated himself to 'the worship of the Old, the Queer, the Strange, the Exotic, the Monstrous.' After some early publication, including translations of stories by Théophile Gautier?Hearn achieved success in works set in Louisiana and the Caribbean [including Chita: A Memory of Last Island (1889), Two Years in the French West Indies (1890), and Youma (1890)]?Hearn's search for the exotic led him to Japan in 1890, where he spent the rest of his life teaching and writing about the Japanese scene. He married a Japanese woman and became a Japanese citizen under the name of Koizumi Yakumo. He published several books on Japan, including Kokoro (1896), In Ghostly Japan (1899), and Japan: An Attempt at Interpretation (1904). But his best work was his first, Glimpses of Unfamiliar Japan (1894)" (Benét's Reader's Encyclopedia).Perkins, pp. 81-84. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1891 edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Original Publisher: [Cambridge, Mass., Printed at the Riverside Press 318 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 451806842
