Book Description

June 26 2008 4861660343 978-4861660344 1 Har/Pap

This facsimile collection features eight satirical fictions from eighteenth-century Britain, which use Japan as their main setting. The authors of this fiction include Jonathan Swift, Tobias Smollett, and George Psalmanazar, the most famous literary fraud and imposter of the eighteenth century. English translations of various European works of the period which became very popular in England have also been included within this collection, which will be a valuable primary source to all students of eighteenth-century English literature, and those interested in the image of Japan and the Japanese held by British writers in the early Modern period.
