About This Item

Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, 1994. Minor creasing to edges of unclipped dustwrapper, minor bumping to spine ends of black boards, a slight smell with the book due to it being kept in a shed, but this should fade. Otherwise a good clean tight copy of this hard-cover book looking at the Jesuit Missions in Japan and China from the arrival of Francis Xavier in Japan in 1549 up to 1742 when the Papal Bull "Ex Quo Singulari" was issued, forbidding the use of Chinese customs and ritual alongside Catholic worship. 216pp.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Good/Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
