Katchi Katchi Yama - Japanese fairy tale in French by Louisman? and...?

Serie De Contes Japonais

 

No.1 Katchi Katchi Yama (without the Au Bon Marche imprint on the cover)

 

Very scarce plain paper Japanese fairy tale in French.

 

From an obscure series of what was supposed to be a series of six Japanese fairy tales made for the famous French department store Au Bon Marche. This book is No.1 in the series and the other 5 are listed in the rear (although it appears only Nos. 1 & 2 were ever published). In the style of Hasegawa/Kobunsha but different. French translators' names written in kanji and one source claims they were Jules Adam and Joseph Dautremer. Woodblock printed illustrations by Kitahara Toshikiyo.

 

N.P. N.D.(c.1890).

 

22pp. 18.2 x 12cm.

 

In good condition  with some wear to covers. Corners a little bumped. Front cover and one other page separated at edge. Otherwise good.
