英學生 The English student's journal.

Tokyo: Seitosha, 1904-1909. 22 issues, illustrations throughout, an incomplete set; edges worn, paper browning, some issues annotated, some bindings reinforced by staples, vocabulary lists and news supplement laid in to many issues. The English Student's Journal was published twice a month and dedicated to providing a "light, breezy, and chatty little paper" through which students of English could study. It offered short news items, witticisms, and curious facts, often with an imperialist and nationalistic bent. Of particular interest is its essay club section, in which readers were encouraged to submit short essays in return for prizes. In these essays we see glimpses of daily life among the educated Japanese, with illness, draft dodging, and the state of the economy finding representation often. Diet Library only in OCLC.
