770 Democray and Mission Education in Korea/1928

Hardcover, 8vo. First edition. 187 pages.
James Earnest Fisher,Ph.D. Teachers College,Columbia University English


2 letters written by John Z. Moore, a Missionary in Korea. Mr. Moore was part of a contingent of Missionaries of the Missionary Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Mr. Moore, I believe, was from St. Clairsville, Ohio. One letter is dated 1907, uses 6 pages, and addressed to Miss Frost. Writer mentions what looks like Basking Ridge, and tells about how his Church and Bible work is going in Korea. I can't make out the city in which this letter was written. The second letter was typewritten at Pyeng Yang, Korea, January 1, 1908. Some of the type has faded, but is still readable, especially for someone with better eyes than mine. 3 pages of this New years Day written letter are typed and there is a manuscript letter on the last page. The typed letter was addressed "Dear Friends" and the manuscript addressed "My Dear Miss Frost". One thing this letter mentions is how much progress has been made since he arrived in Korea 3 years ago, and how much is yet to be done and accomplished. The paper on which this letter is written has rough top edges, age yellowing and staining and the aforementioned fading type. There are no covers, or envelopes, with the letters.

682 1936 Photo-illustrated Calendar /1936

Size:22x14cm...This is a unique and quite wonderful offering consisting of a 1936 photo-illustrated calendar outlining the missionary work of the Disciples of Christ in both Korea and Japan, plus a small brochure memorializing W.D. Cunningham, one of the denominations most celebrated missionaries who died in the U.S. in May of that year while home on furlough. A photo of him is tipped in inside. What's interesting is that the calendar talks about his good health the same year as his sudden death. Cunningham did contract polio during the early 1900's, however, and this kept the denomination from allowing him to evangelize overseas. So he and his wife went to Asia independently and were so successfull, thanks in part, to the printing press he took with him, that he ended up as head of the Japanese mission. The calendar is clealy a mission sponsored item tied at the top with string. But what makes it so fascinating is the wealth of information about both Cunningham and his wife, Emily, who carried on after his demise; and the missions in both Tokyo and Korea. Photos show native leaders, the buildings constructed, and several congregation activities. A unique item in church history. Note: The life of Cunningham is detailed in the book "The Flaming Torch" by Emily Blackstone Boyd Cunningham.

This is a contemporaneous review of Basil Hall's book, "Account of a Voyage of Discovery to the West Coast of Corea, and the Great Loo-Choo Island." The reviewer remarked that the main discovery of the voyage was the visit to Western Korea which ".had never, in fact, been seen by Europeans, though parts of the interior had been visited by some shipwrecked Dutchmen." The commentator notes the visit to Sulphur Island and the extended stay in Okinawa (Loo-choo). A majority of the commentary deals with Okinawa (Loo-choo) (pages 313-320). The commentary continues on to the call in St. Helena and the visit with the exiled Buonaparte.

Hard cover,cloth .8 vo. 315 pages plus 2 maps and nine illustrations. First edition...............................................................The book contains not only the general history of Korea but also very important subjects on early protestant history. It mentions Rev. Charles Gutzlaff, who visited Korea in 1832 spent about a month and even offered to present the king with a Bible, but declined. Also mentioned about John Ross and John McIntyre and their translation of the New Testament. This is the probably the earliest book mentioning Rijuite(Lee Soo Jung), who became a Christian in Japan and translated Scripures. And more detailed descriptions on opening to Christian missionaries.................................. 'There are Dutch, French and American graves in Corea. Wherever a fragment of our national treasures lie, our hearts should be; and the object of the editor of this work is to interest American readers, and especially American Christians, in what the French priests call "the land of martyrs". The journal of Hendrik Hamel, who in 1653, on his way to Nagasaki, Japan, was shipwrecked on Quelpaert Island, is herewith reprinted with explanatory notes. These, with introductory and supplementary historical chapters, will, the editor trusts, give the reader a bird's-eye glance of Corea past and present, and views from without and within' (introduction). 'Griffis's reputation during his lifetime was as an earnest, sincere friend of the Japanese, but he was not a sycophant.
