Small Exhibition “From Our Rare Book Collection” (February 2018)

This month we are displaying Ten weeks in Japan, published in London in 1861.

The author, George Smith (1815-1871), was the first Bishop of the Diocese of Victoria in Hong Kong from 1849 to 1865, which served as a base for the missionary work of the Anglican Church in the Far East. He came to Japan in 1860 in order to investigate the possibilities of missionary work in Japan. This book summarizes his report on the actual conditions of Japanese society and his observations on the prospects of evangelism in Japan.
