Japanese Calendar with Verses by Osman Edwards (1898) Very scarce plain paper edition
One of Hasegawa's most beautiful calendar designs. The crepe paper versions occasionally turn up but the plain paper edition seldom appears anywhere. Also, we believe this is the only plain paper calendar by Hasegawa that has the calendar pages printed on transparent tissue-like paper that were then inserted between the woodblock printed pages.
Tokyo. Hasegawa Takejiro. 1898. 12pp (+12pp of tissue-like paper each printed on one side only). 18 x 12.5cm.
In very good condition. Some minor wear and creasing to covers and to tissue-like pages. Otherwise very good. b30050138
