Don Juan's Grandson in Japan - with notes for the globe-trotter's benefit Edited by A. Miall (J. Murdoch)
The first book that James Murdoch (1856-1921) wrote in Japan, it is a rather long piece of satirical verse. This is Canto I and the book mentions at the end that Canto II will 'shortly appear' but it seems likely a second volume was never published. Possibly this first volume was not a big success. The last half of the book contains more verses relating to Japan with some detailed notes.
