Excerpt from Notes on Ancient Stone Implements, &C., Of Japan
My object in publishing these Notes on the Ancient Stone Implements, &c., of Japan is to furnish to Western scholars materials for the study of the Archaeology of Japan and to hear the results of their study.
<... br/>We have begun with notes on the stone implements because these concern the earliest and the most important period of antiguity. It is probable that in many other parts of the world beyond our narrow limits there are found some remains of the Stone Age which exactly resemble our own; others which resemble them in the main but differ in details. It is also probable that there are some in this country which are not found elsewhere. If, therefore, by a comparison of the various opinions of Western scholars and of our own, some light can be thrown upon the unrecorded history of our country our labor will have been fully repaid. To this end we cordially invite the free expression of the opinions of those interested in the subject on any point either found in, or suggested by, these notes.
