The Deer Cry Pavilion: A Story of Westerners in Japan, 1868-1905 [1968]

£9.99

Product description

Published in 1968 by Macmillan. Illustrated end papers.

Following the success of the Pat Barr's previous book on Japan: 'The Coming of the Barbarians', The Deer Cry Pavilion continues the history looking at the period from 1868 to 1905.
Very much the story of Westerners in Japan; what they experienced and how they were treated. It includes about 28 monochrome photographic plates, and a useful bibliography and index.

It was the Emperor Meiji's restoration to the throne in 1868 that ushered in the long period of 'Enlightened Government' which saw thousands of Westerners crossing Japan's threshold to witness the country's modernisation. For thirty years professionals, diplomats, traders, missionaries and globe-trotters introduced new possibilities to a nation that had long been isolated. Each visitor and resident experienced a different Japan during these exciting and progressive years: from the machinations of the merchants in the Yokohama hongs and the bear-worshipping rituals of the Ainu to the secret and cruel world of the courtesans of the Nightless City, to missionaries disappearing into the hinterland with bibles and bicycles and upper-class Japanese women dancing Viennese waltzes under the chandeliers of the Deer Cry Pavalion. In The Coming of the Barbarians, Pat Barr wrote of the early years of Japan's contact with the West, painting the portrait of a society in transition: in The Deer Cry Pavilion the pace is accelerated as she describes a country hurtling through centuries of change in just a few decades.

Complete with price-clipped dust jacket, which has light rubbing wear. In a nice clean condition with a firm binding.
