This richly illustrated softcover book provides the first concise description in English of Nagasaki’s famous Western-style residence, including biographical sketches of Thomas Glover and his British/Japanese son Kuraba Tomisaburo and information on architectural features. The author also takes up the controversial postwar career of the building as a tourist attraction, particularly its provocative but groundless connection with the opera Madama Butterfly.
