Price List of Japanese Bulbs, Plants, Seeds, etc. Exported by Louis Boehmer 1892 Published by Hasegawa Takejiro
Very scarce crepe paper book published for nurseryman and florist, Louis Boehmer (1843-96) at No.4, 5, & 28, Bluff, Yokohama, Japan. He first came to Japan in 1872 and opened his Yokohama nursery in 1882. This appears to be the first crepe paper catalogue he had published. We have seen others for 1893-94 and for 1895-96 and then plain paper catalogues after that.
Tokyo. Hasegawa Takejiro. 1892.
