Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book The Diary of Charles Holme's 1889 Visit to Japan and North America with Mrs Lasenby Liberty's Japan: A Photographic Record presents the table of contents, foreword, a list of general plates, list of Emma Lasenby Liberty's plates, acknowledgements and the introduction. Charles Holme was a key figure in the art world in Europe in addition to his being a major disseminator of Japanese art. Holme wrote two volumes of his diary over the course of the journey around the world. What survives of Holme's original handwritten diary is now in the possession of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. The surviving volume now adds to the body of first-hand accounts and tells us about the sourcing of Japanese goods for the London market, particularly for Liberty's influential department store that made its name selling merchandise from the Near East and Asia.
