Notes: A Christian missionary provides an illustrated travelog of the Holy Land, Europe, and the United States for Japanese audiences.
Gulick, born in Hawaii (1830–1923), was stationed in Japan from 1870 to 1892. In the early 1880s, he made an extended tour of the West, speaking widely on the efforts to convert Japanese to Christianity. This book, apparently only published in Japanese, introduces the West to Japanese converts and potential converts.
The book is illustrated with ten engraved or woodblock plates (three folding), plus several in-text illustrations. The most affecting image is block print of an Arab woman, which makes good use of negative space.
