The Nippon Club was established in 1905 by Dr. Jokichi Takamine and currently boasts 1,100 members. Although Hearn and Takamine didn't actually meet, they were both enthusiastic about the New Orleans Exposition, and when Takamine returned to Japan, he took the opportunity during his lectures to call on the Japanese government to give precedence to people such as Hearn who showed compassion for Japan, and would introduce Japan to the world. There will be a display of over 20 beautifully bound first editions of Hearn's books, mostly published by New York publishing houses such as Harper & Brothers, Houghton, Mifflin & Co. and Macmillan & Co.
