Chapter Summary

The front mater section of this book The Business, Life and Letters of Frederick Cornes: Aspects of the Evolution of Commerce in Modern Japan, 1861-1910 contains a table of contents, a preface, a list of tables, plates and glossary. There is relatively little accessible contemporary and primary material about the commercial evolution of the modern Japanese economy and its international connections. The masterly text of the book puts the Cornes' letters into their context, providing an admirable survey of the expansion of Yokohama as a major port, its infrastructure and the growth of its trade and shipping, together with the role of Cornes and of other expatriate merchant houses.

Keywords: Frederick Cornes; Japanese economy; Yokohama
