Victorian Lady Travellers in Asia - A Collection of Travel Writings
Part 1, 5 Vols
Following the reprint of Recollections by Marianne North, a leading lady traveller in the Victorian era, Edition Synapse has initiated a series of facsimile collections of travel writing by Victorian women on Asia in the nineteenth century. Victorian Lady Travellers in Asia is the first in a series of four collections of five volumes each by British lady travellers who came to Japan and China in the period of early modernization. These writings—together with many plates and photographs (which are reproduced here)—represent a variety of Western women’s views on Asian culture within a fascinating period of westernization.
