Large Advertisment for Mawe & Co., London & Yokohama Importers & Exporters
Beautifully illustrated, single sheet advertisement for Mawe & Co., who imported and exported various products from Japan, China and East India. They were based in Farringdon Road, London but also had an office in Yokohama. The text mentions that they have, '...goods on show at the Edinburgh Exhibition', which was held in 1886. There was a Scottish National Exhibition held in Edinburgh in 1908 but Mawe & Co. is known to have sold Japanese fairy tale books around 1890 so we believe this ad refers to the 1886 International Exhibition of Industry, Science and Art held in Edinburgh.
