Essentials of Learning for the Young and Mirror for Women

DATE
Year: 1916
Decade: 1910s
Century: 20th (1901-2000)
Notes: Taisho 5

“Yôgaku kôyô” (Essentials of Learning for the Young) and “Fujokan” (Mirror for Women).

According to scholar Peter Kornicki, “This contains two works both published by the Kunaishô (Imperial Household Ministry). The colophon at the end of the second one, Fujokan (Mirror for Women), shows that it was originally published in 1887 but that this is the 6th impression of 1916; that probably applies to the other (Yôgaku kôyô, [Essentials of Learning for the Young]).

The second was written by Motoda Eifu, the Confucian advisor to the Meiji Emperor, while the first was written by Nishimura Shigeki.”
