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). Volume 3 covers the period of 1883–1888 he spent in Europe (January 1883–January 1884; June 1887–December 1888) and Siam (February 1884–May 1887). During his years in Siam he had also made two short trips to Japan during October–November 1884 and June–September 1886.
