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.
