Excerpt from Japan in Art and Industry: With a Glance at Japanese, Manners and Customs

In Japan it is all the other way. No one there seems to trouble his head with the destinies of la be'te, and the people are so constituted as to take human miseries as little as possible to heart.

Thus in actual life the blind are the subjects of consideration, yet the Japanese pictures - the traffic in which is much brisker and more extensive than the Chinese, be it said in passing - often make merry at their expense.

Contrariwise, there is no' example of the caustic Wit of Japan exercising itself in the caricature of the hunchbacked. And for the very simple reason that, although there are many blind, there is no one hump backed.
