The Papers of Sir Ernest Satow collection consists of Satow's private and diplomatic correspondences, along with books, letters, papers, and diaries with transcripts.
Spanning from 1856 to 1927, the records document Satow's activities as a British diplomat and scholar, and a key figure in East Asia and Anglo-Japanese and -Chinese relations. The collection is divided into two major parts: the digitized original personal papers of Satow, and the transcripts of Satow's diaries and travel journals. Researchers can view Satow's diaries and travel journals juxtaposed with its transcript.
Of interest to scholars in history, political science, British history, East-Asian history.
