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 4 covers the period of 1889-1894 he spent in Europe (January-April 1889; October 1891-January 1892; July-August 1893), Uruguay (May 1889-September 1891; February 1892-June 1893), and Morocco (August 1893-December 1894).
