This collection gathers all the primary texts, some rare or hitherto unpublished, written on Ryukyu by Western visitors, scholars, and missionaries from the 16th century to the eve of World War II. This first set of five volumes covers the period up to the arrival of Commodore Perry in 1854. It is of interest to historians and anthropologists, as well as to everyone who wants to understand the background of Okinawa's persistent distinctiveness and of its complex relations with the Japanese governments.
