Au Japon - Les Raconteurs Publics Elusive, large plain paper edition

Fine example of Hasegawa at his best. This is the French edition of the story of Kairakutei Black (1858-1923), the Australian-born son of John Reddie Black, who became the first foreign rakugo storyteller or 'rakugoka'.

Tokyo. Hasegawa Takejiro. 1899.

1st and only large edition

24.8 x 18.2cm. 28pp.

One of the most elusive of all Hasegawa's publications. This is only the first we have ever had (in twenty years of looking).

In fine condition throughout.

One of the photos above shows the difference in size between this plain paper version (on the left) and the smaller crepe paper version (on the right). Note the book for sale is only the plain paper edition on the left.
