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 indicates this to be the first edition of this book on plain paper and has Hasegawa's name on the cover. Later editions had different colouring on the cover. No slipcase present.

 

Tokyo. Hasegawa Takejiro. 1895.

 

pp [8], 80, [4]. 24.6 x 18.6cm.

 

In very good condition throughout. Minor wear and spotting to covers. Internally very good with a few pages separated at edge. Previous owner's name written at top of title page. Silk ties and silk spine covering also very good. b33070994
