Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843–1929) was a legendary British diplomat, a key figure in East Asia and Anglo–Japanese/Chinese relations, particularly in Bakumatsu (1853–1867) and Meiji Era (1868–1912) Japan, and in China after the Boxer Rebellion (1900–1906). He also served in Siam (present-day Thailand), Uruguay and Morocco, and represented Britain at the Second Hague Peace Conference in 1907. This transcribed and annotated collection consists of Satow’s diaries and travel journals, which covers a period of over sixty-five years (1861 to 1926). This volume covers the period of 1873–1882 he spent in Japan (January 1873–October 1874; and January 1877–December 1882) and Europe (July 1875–December 1876).
