Two Victorian travellers' eye-witness accounts of their adventures while journeying through Japan. Filled with entertaining anecdotes, this special ebook edition is illustrated with dozens of beautiful and evocative photos (many hand-tinted), early postcards; antique prints and engravings. Landscapes, portraits, rural, domestic and urban scenes of traditional daily life, local ceremonies and customs, including marriage, crime and punishment, royal court life, festivals, hara-kiri suicide. In her letters from 1878, published as Unbeaten Tracks In Japan, Isabella Bird complained about the "abominable weather" and the "insect pests". In Sketches of Japanese Manners and Customs, by Lieutenant J.M.W. Silver, from 1867, we discover the secrets of mixed bath houses, funerals, and criminal executions. This joint re-edition is illustrated with dozens of beautiful and fascinating hand-tinted photos from the period, specially selected, plus prints and engravings.

    Good book, but I think it should be noted that the photographs in this book are ALL black and white. The impression is given that they are colour tinted. There is a sample page on the Fisheseye website in which the photograph is coloured. This is misleading.
