Written in 1878 as letters to her sister, and published in two volumes in 1880, this tells the story of Bird's travels through the interior of Hokkaido (Yezo), Japan, when she faced a variety of hardships that would have sent fainter hearts into a tizzy of major-league proportions. She describes the weather, habits and customs of the Japanese, as well as travel conditions and how women and children fared in the country. Full leather w/gilt illustration/design to covers, gilt designs/lettering to spine, raised bands, all edges gilt, silk endpapers, ribbon bookmark, 407 pages (including itinerary) in first volume, 392 pages (including index) + map in second volume, illustrated. Minor scuffing to edge gilt, light general wear. A very nice copy. This weighs more than the average book, so additional postage may be required.
