Jean-Antoine Dubois, 1765-1848, French catholic missionary, sailed in 1792 to India where he spent twenty-seven years, serving first in Pondichery, then at Mysore and Mangalore. He abjured western society, dressed as a Sanyasi, and became a vegetarian. In 1827 he returned to Paris where he was appointed head on the Missions Étrangères. This book, one of the first classic analyses of Hindu society, soon became a standard work and a kind of manual for the Indian Civil Service. It is now known that a substantial portion of the work was plagiarized from the writings of a French Jesuit, Father Gaston-Laurent Coeurdoux, who worked in south India from 1732 to 1779 and was himself a noted Indologist.

He presented this report in Paris. The Rev. Richard E. Smith was the first priest specifically ordained for the West Indian Mission and was based in Trinidad.

Smith went to Europe to raise funds and obtain more priests to serve in the Mission. He returned to the West Indies in November 1839. He had needed to fill a short fall in income, as the British Government resisted funding Roman Catholic work, although the population, having been administered by the Spanish and then the French, was largely Catholic. The Association for the Work of the Propagation of the faith continued to fund his work, with £1,400 in 1840 and £1,000 in 1841. (The reduced amount was because the Bishop failed to present his next report on time). 16 pp.

The exhibition at the Rosenbach featured a copy of Manjiro's own lavishly illustrated manuscript account of his adventures, and this companion book includes full-page colour reproductions the manuscript. 116 pages. 260 x 185 mm (10¼ x 7¼ inches). In 1843 (at just 16 years old) Nakahama Manjirō became the first Japanese person to live in the United States. Two years earlier, at the tender age of 14, he had been rescued after a shipwreck by the crew of the 'John Howland', an American whale ship from New Bedford, Massachusetts. Having mastered English, sailing the world on whaling ships for several years, and trying his hand at gold mining, Manjirō later risked his life to go back to Japan in an attempt to make his homeland more "hospitable."
    After much suspicion, and many interrogations, he was later to become a shōgun's samurai, a teacher of English and American culture, and his translation of Nathaniel Bowditch's 'The New American Practical Navigator' constituted the introduction of modern scientific navigation methods to Japan. His life story is certainly a fascinating one, and number of Manjirō's students would go on to play seminal roles in the Meiji-era modernisation of Japan.
    This information has been extrapolated from an article written by Junji Kitadai.
