Written while was Hearn was a professor of English literature at the Imperial University of Tokyo, A Japanese Miscellany (1901) contains three sections: “Strange Stories,””Folklore Gleanings,”(with its beautiful dragonfly illustrations), and “Studies Here and There,” which looks at unusual aspects of Japanese culture. Of special note is a delightful discussion of the traditional Daruma doll, including its toy manifestations.
