Glimpses of an Unfamiliar Japan, vol 2

by Lafcadio Hearn

One will find in these volumes descriptions of travel, wonderful accounts of famous temples and neighborhoods, charming stories of personal experience, and not a few pictures which, by their marvelous accuracy and sympathetic touch, recall the natural wonders of the sea-girt Islands of the Sun ; but beyond and above those things which the skilled traveler and literary artist transfers to his pages, Mr. Hearn has succeeded in photographing, as it were, the Japanese soul. There seems to be something in his own physical and intellectual make-up that renders him sensitive on all sides to what is peculiar in the Japanese character. --New York Evening Post.
