This new set from Edition Synapse represents a complete collection of Percival Lowell's writings on Asia (primarily on Japan and Korea) including fourteen journal and newspaper articles and transcribed letters to his sister and a leading imagist poet of the time Amy Lowell and Lafcadio Hearn.

Travelling widely in Japan and Korea in the 1880s and 1890s, he published the works collected here which influenced Lafcadio Hearn and his books on Japan. His books such as `Choson', `Noto' and `Occult Japan' were read widely amongst the American intellectual community at the end of the nineteenth century and played an important role for the formation of the early American image on East Asia. Edited by Davis Strauss, author of Percival Lowell: the Culture and Science of a Boston Brahmin (Harvard Univ. Press, 2001) , this set also contains a descriptive introduction for each article.
