Sparfven med den Klippta Tungan Scarce crepe paper book in Swedish

[Japan] One of the three known Japanese fairy tales published on crepe paper in Swedish. This is a translation of The Tongue-Cut Sparrow that was translated by Konni Zilliacus (1855-1924). Although Hasegawa used the same Japanese colophon page that is dated 1885, Zilliacus was in Japan from around 1894-1896 so this book was published during that period, probably 1896. The other two Swedish editions are Momotaro and Kobutori. All three are difficult to find.

 

Tokyo. Hasegawa Takejiro. c1896 (and Helsingfors. Wentzel Hagelstams Forlag).

 

11 leaves. 15.3 x 10.5cm.

 

In very good condition with only minor age wear to covers. b35031352
