First published in 1903, this three volume set deals with the history of Japan from its origins to the end of the Tokugawa Shogunate. Drawing for the first time on Japanese, European and Latin sources, this classic text was the first comprehensive study of Japanese history in English, contributing to an understanding of Japan by Westerners at the time. The three volumes deal with the origins of Japan to the arrival of the Portuguese in 1542, the century of foreign intercourse, 1542-1651, and the Tokugawa Epoch, 1652-1868.
