Aston, Satow, Chamberlain, (4 volume set)
The Asiatic Society of Japan celebrates its 125th anniversary with the publication of the papers of the three great pioneers of early japanology.
The Asiatic Socity of Japan celebrates its 125th anniversary with the publication of the papers of the great pioneers of early japanology—W.G. Aston, E.M. Satow, and B.H. Chamberlain. Their groundbreaking work, brought to light here for the first time since their original publication in Transactions, will continue to enlighten scholars and students of Japanology today. These giants in the field were the first to incorporate both indigenous Japanese scholarship and Western studies on Japan, thereby vastly broadening the study of Japan's history, culture, language, and people.
By making these writings accessible again, the Asiatic Society of Japan has done a great service to students of Japan all over the world. It is a tribute to the oustanding scholarship of Aston, Satow, and Chamberlain that a present day researcher may still learn so much from their writings. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this set also includes minutes of the lively discussions that followed meetings ot the Society—showing the atmosphere of the meetings and opinions of foreign researchers at that time.
