6. Ashmead, John. The Idea of Japan 1853-1895: Japan as Described by American and Other Travellers from the West. New York: Garland, 1987.

Though Ashmead’s study was originally presented as a PhD thesis at Harvard University in 1950, it remains the fullest survey of nineteenth-century European and American travellers in Japan and their writing of the country. Includes discussion of, among many others, Kipling (see CA1), Edwin Arnold (CA1), Mitford (D4), Chamberlain (D5), Percival Lowell (D6), Hearn (D9), Fenollosa (D10), Brinkley (D14), John La Farge (Ap), Pierre Loti (Ap), and Edward Morse (Ap).
