About this collection

MS 15/1

 

The diaries are undoubtedly the most important documents in the collection and comprise 77 volumes covering the years 1854-1908. They were taken out of Hart’s Peking office by a well-meaning colleague before it, his house and their contents were destroyed during the Boxer disturbances and are, therefore, the only papers which date from before 1900. It is interesting to note, however, that Hart subsequently professed to regret this particular rescue.
