L. Boehmer & Co's Catalogue of Japanese Plants, Bulbs & Seeds Beautiful book by Hasegawa Takejiro
[Japan] Superb, important catalogue that Louis Boehmer (1843-96) commissioned Hasegawa to make for him. Hasegawa cleverly reused a number of woodlock prints from other books he published such as Japan's Year and The Favourite Flowers of Japan, but this work is a fascinating look at Boehmer's successful export nursery business based in Yokohama.
