Japan-British Exhibition 1910 (ES 6-vol. set)
*This Edition Synapse collection is now available outside Japan from Routledge. It brings together primary-source materials on the Japan–British Exhibition of 1910 held at London's Shepherd’s Bush from 14 May to 29 October 1910. It was the largest international exposition that the Empire of Japan had participated in to date, and was driven by a desire in Japan to develop a more favourable public image in Great Britain following the renewal of the Anglo–Japanese Alliance. It was also hoped that the display of manufactured products would lead to increased trade with Britain.
*The lavishly illustrated collection brings together eleven publications, including various guidebooks, illustrated catalogues of exhibited Japanese fine arts, the official report, a collected volume of articles from The Times, and miscellaneous publications and souvenir books published on the occasion of the Exhibition. All the carefully collated works are reprinted as facsimiles of the originals.
