Paper Samples of the Fuji Paper Co. Ltd. To commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the company
Thick book of mostly plain paper samples of varying thicknesses. Samples of packing labels (all shown here) are very interesting and well designed. Most of the labels appear to be collotyped and some lithographed. The final one is rather different in that it shows a caricature of an African person and advertises manila paper printed by the Mitsuma Printing Co.
The Fuji Paper Co. was established in 1887 so this book was published in 1913 as there is a reference to the year 1913 in the preface.
144 numbered pages. 25.7 x 18.5cm.
