Complete Set of 10 Japanese Fairy Tales on Crepe Paper in Spanish In original box and tissue sleeves
[Japan] Stunning original set of 10 books in their original tissue wraps and box. With the success of Hasegawa's sets of fairy tales in English, French and German, he published sets in Spanish and Portuguese as well. Translated by Gonzalo J. de la Espada. There were two different sets of 10 books in Spanish (both numbered 1-10). This is the set titled, 'Leyendas y Narraciones Japonesas' and contains the following titles: No. 1 La Boda De Los Ratones, No. 2 La Sierpe De Ocho Cabezas, No. 3 La Liebre De Inaba, No. 4 El Espejo De Matsuyama, No. 5 La Medusa Candida, No. 6 El Principe Brillante y El Principe Luciente, No. 7 La Olla Magica, No. 8 Sippeitaro, No. 9 El Brazo Del Ogro, No. 10 La Cascada Maravillosa. Found in a Japanese 'kura' or storehouse that was apparently untouched for over 100 years. A rare find.
Tokyo. Hasegawa Takejiro. 1914.
Each 18-28pp. Each 15.2 x 10.3cm.
Books in virtually as-new condition. Volume 1 has a mark from where the paper band that was holding the books together was. The two original tissue wraps (holding 5 books each) are present. One is very good, the other has some tears which makes it difficult to reinsert the books. The paper band is broken but this would have been unavoidable in order to look at the books. The box has some spotting inside but is fine on the outside. b33040903
