[KIMONO DESIGN - MANUSCRIPT],
An Album of Designs.
[KIMONO DESIGN - MANUSCRIPT]. 10 1/2" x 14 1/2" oblong design book, bound in single backed sheets on the short side with string (not fukuro-toji). With a brushed title label, sealed throughout but otherwise anonymous. (As often happens with manuscripts the name of the shop which used it as a pattern book has been excised). There are 25 black and white design sketches for elaborate kimono. More of a Kano, rather than a Rimpa style. The album probably dates from the first half of the 19th Century. A lovely item which suffers from very bad worming throughout. Though the damage is worse at the extremities of the work, holes are shot through the paper and effect the design images, as well. Sold with all faults.

[CHINESE PITH PAINTINGS],
ALBUM OF 30 FISH ON 12 SHEETS.
18. [CHINESE PITH PAINTINGS]. ALBUM OF 30 FISH ON 12 SHEETS. Album of 12 sheets of pith, approximately 19 x 26 cm each, mounted onto pages within covers approx. 24.7 x 34.3 cm, covered in brocade with ties. A wonderful mid-19th century example of this realistic genre, which uses the three dimensionality afforded by the surface of the inner plant pith of the Tetrapanax papyriferum, a ginseng relative that grow to the size of a small tree, shaved as here into thin sheets and painted with opaque colors. The fish sparkle and the colors glow, the fish accuraely depicted in form and color. Pith by its very nature is extremely fragile and larger sheets such as those employed here even more than usually frangible. Thus the completeness of the sheets with almost no lost pigmeted sections is most unusual. The covers are a bit worn though, as usual, the paintings show occasional cracking and repair, but a worthy example of its kind.

[PHOTOGRAPHY - JAPAN],
ALBUM OF PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE AFTERMATH OF THE KANTO EARTH QUAKE OF 1923.
1923. Very Good. [PHOTOGRAPHY - JAPAN] ALBUM OF PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE AFTERMATH OF THE KANTO EARTHQUAKE OF 1923. Oblong 11" x 15" grey cloth cord-bound covers. 93 original b/w photographs 4 3/8" x 6" mounted on thick card stock, two per page.Bookplate to fly leaf reads "ex libris K. Sinkai". Boards are slightly bowed. Cloth is moderately worn. Card stock is lightly soiled with a few pages showing light foxing. Photographs are clean and bright. Extraordinary images with fine detail, ink captions by hand in Japanese, detailing locations where the photos were taken. Most images are of damage to the buildings, roads and other structures in Tokyo, Yokohama and environs as far as Odawara and Hakone. There are a number of photos of relief efforts and other scenes of daily life following the disaster. Our research has not turned up any of these images in published albums or accounts. The photographs themselves are very skillful, more apt to be the work of a professional photographer rather than snapshots by an amateur. The photos are quiet, and convey the stunning extent of the utter destruction. The few people seen are dwarfed by the ruins. In very good condition overall.

[HASSHU^ GAFU],
BAICHIKU RANGIKU [SHIFU].
1720. Good. [HASSHU GAFU]. BAICHIKU RANGIKU [SHIFU]. 28.1 x 19.4 cm. One volume [THE ALBUM OF PLUM, BAMBOO, RAN AND CHRYSANTHEMUM] only of eight volumes originally published in Ming-era China. The Ming edition is unobtainable and the first Japanese edition of 1672 virtually so. This is almost certainly one of the volumes of the 1710 Kyoto edition, printed by Nakagawa Mohei. HASSHU GAFU literally translates as A COLLECTION OF EIGHT ILLUSTRATED SKETCH BOOKS. The books in the collection had no intrinsic connection with each other, save that they were heavily illustrated in woodcut. Some, like this one, are done on a botanical theme, others are illustrated poetry collections. In any event, the HASSHU GAFU had a great deal of influence on the Chinese style painters of the early Edo period once it was published there, an influence that only started to fade upon the import of the color printed MUSTARD SEED GARDEN and TEN BAMBOO HALL. This copy has the original dark blue green covers, printed on a thin hard toshi paper, string-bound fukuro-toji Japanese-style with the original printed paper title label. Overall good condition, good impressions.
