A Diplomat in Japan, Part II: The Diaries of Ernest Satow, 1870-1883
Sir Ernest Satow's well-known best-seller "A Diplomat in Japan" (first published in 1921) which is still widely available in paperback is based mainly on his diaries ("journals") for 1862-69. The unabridged diaries in this volume, carefully transcribed from original documents held at the U.K. National Archives and published for the first time on lulu.com, tell the story of Ernest Satow's subsequent years in Japan (and home leaves in Britain, France, Germany and Italy) up until the start of 1883. This fully annotated book includes an introduction by former U.K. Ambassador to Japan Sir Hugh Cortazzi, six black & white illustrations, a map, a select bibliogaphy, a chronology and an index. (This book is part of a series in which some of the extensive and hitherto unpublished Satow Papers are being made available in print to scholars and the general reading public by Ian Ruxton.)
