Japanische Dichtungen Weissaster Very scarce plain (hosho) paper edition

[Japan] by Karl Florenz. Although the crepe paper editions of this book were very popular and went through numerous editions, we believe there were very few printings of the plain paper edition in German on hosho paper. The Japanese colophon states '7th edition' but we believe this was just copied using a woodblock from the 7th edition of the crepe paper version. This is a stunning book in its original slipcase. The photo with two books shows the hosho paper edition on the right and the crepe paper edition on the left. This listing is only for the hosho paper edition.

 

Tokyo. Hasegawa Takejiro. 1907.

 

pp [8], 80, [4]. 24.6 x 18.3cm.

 

In fine condition throughout. Thanks to the slipcase the book even has the original silk covering on the spine. Neat inscription in German inside front cover. Minor damage to top of spine covering. b33060959
