This set demonstrates the increasing interest among Western people paid to civilisation in the East at the turn of the nineteenth century. Included are Kishio Satomi's studies on Nichiren and Japanese idealism, which were written from an Eastern viewpoint specifically for a Western audience. Also reprinted here is Chamberlain's translation from classical Japanese poetry which offers one of the first known attempts to interpret the literature of the Japanese to the Western world.
