Miyatake (1867-1955) was an author, journalist and wit who was imprisoned for publishing an image of the Meiji Emperor as a skeleton. The images in this book are very interesting and unusual.
In good condition. Old stain affecting the top corners of the last 14 pages of mostly text. The colour woodblock printed pages have escaped the stains. General age wear. Covers and corners a bit worn.
