One Thousand Familiar Phrases in English and Romanized Japanese by the Rev. John Liggins

John Liggins (1829-1912) first came to Japan in May 1859 but left in February 1860 due to ill health. He published the first edition of this book in Shanghai in 1860. A second edition came out in New York in 1867 and then this third and revised edition in Tokyo in 1870. All editions are very scarce. The Hokumonsha was a school that operated in Waseda from 1869-1872 and was founded by Yanagida Tokichi, who employed Hori Tatsunosuke to teach English. The site of the school later became part of Okuma Shigenobu's villa.
