Ceremonial Japan by Dolly Belle Published by Akiyama Aisaburo

[Japan] One of the most beautiful Japanese crepe paper books ever published. Superb quality woodblock printed designs and colouring. Simply a stunning book and arguably the nicest of the four large crepe paper books produced by Akiyama (the others being Musical Japan, Floral Japan and The Rokkasen), who was apparently related to Hasegawa Takejiro. Dolly Belle was presumably a name made up by Akiyama.

Tokyo. Akiyama Aisaburo. 1896.

9 leaves (including the covers). 24.7 x 19.4cm.

In very good condition. Minor age wear to front cover. Internally fine. b34071237
