The silver drum : a Japanese imperial memoir by Chichibu no Miya Setsuko( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of a Japanese princess. It is the first autobiography by a member of the Japanese Imperial Family to be published in English. Her name was Setsuko, Princess Chichibu, who was born in Walton-on-Thames, England, in 1909, was educated at the Peeresses' School for Girls, Tokyo, and the Friends School, Washington, and was then invited to marry Prince Chichibu, younger brother of Emperor Hirohito and therefore next in line to the throne. She accepted, and although from a distinguished noble family in western Japan - the Matsudairas - she was technically a commoner because her father had earlier renounced his title and so she had to be 'adopted' by the Imperial Family. The marriage duly took place in September 1928. She died at the age of 85 in August 1995, the Prince having died prematurely of tuberculosis some forty years earlier

Kamakura : fact & legend by Iso Mutsu( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kamakura: Fact and Legend, has long been the definitive work on Kamakura. This classic book is the lifetime achievement of Countess Iso Mutsu (nEe Gertrude Ethel Passingham), a talented, inquisitive Englishwoman who against all odds married a Japanese diplomat at the turn of the century, and so came to live most of her life in this beautiful city. Iso Mutsu was one of the first to discover that much of the magic of Kamakura today lies in fascinating historical events of the past, among them: the brilliant conquests of Minamoto no Yoritomo, the defiant dance of Shizuka Gozen at Hachiman Shrine, and the amazing rescue of Nichiren at Katase. Her brilliantly crafted accounts of these events, interwoven with walking tours of Kamakura, introduce the city's most important historical sites and explain why they are so famous. Kamakura: Fact and Legend, the only book that Iso Mutsu wrote, is a testament to the devotion with which she succeeded in unlocking Kamakura's secrets for the outside world. The inspiration and reference for later works on Kamakura, this classic volume is both the original and the most in-depth guide to an ancient capital that continues to delight and amaze the traveler
