A Critical, Misogynist Memoir of New York City

Nyuyoku [New York]

Notes: Harada's acerbic, illustrated memoirs of a stay in New York City. He is not fond of the people, the crowds, or the culture. Women particularly infuriated him.

"Harada's... memoirs treat women as the objects of a kind of sexual rage: 'Because their society has indiscriminately raised them up too high, all American women are arrogant and full of rudeness'"—quoted in Karen Kelsky's Women on the Verge, p. 53.

Extensively illustrated with halftone plates and some in-text drawings.

5, 1, 18, 498 pages, 45 unnumbered leaves of plates. Text in Japanese with furigana alongside the kanji.

OCLC: 24927018, 673442829, 1021040371 (seven copies, three in the US).

Edition + Condition: A very good copy in the publisher's blue cloth binding stamped in gilt.

Publication: Tokyo: Seikyosha, 1914 (Taisho 3).
