Illustrated guide book to Japan by Le Couteur, who later spied on France for Australia. He seems to have thoroughly enjoyed his time in Japan but ends with a brief account of an incident in Sydney when the vessel returned and some children fell into the harbour. Luckily, most were rescued by crew who jumped in to save them.
