Historical materials relating to Japan's foreign relations                Collection List

This is a collection of historical books and other materials to be used by anyone who wants to find out about Japan's past dealings with other nations. Ranging from works introduced to Japan in the Edo period -- such as the Isoho monogatari (a Japanese translation of Aesop's Fables) and the Kaitai shinsho -- to Meiji-period works such as the Seiyo jijo, it offers a wealth of contemporary material for any student delving into the starting points of Japan's internationalization.
