[MANUSCRIPT - JAPANESE KIMONO DESIGNS]. KOSODE GOFUKUTEN: - [A catalogue with 50 hand coloured designs for kimonos]. Kyoto about mid 1800's.

A sample book comprising 50 different hand coloured patterns to be used for kimonos or other textiles, all rendered in exquisite and soft colours depicting landscapes, flowers and birds in a most delicate way. Numbered in old Japanese. Bound in original paper wrappers. Covers, first and last leaves affected by wormholes. With stamp of Kosode Gofukuten which is the name of a kimono store. We assume that this is a pattern book that was used at the shop Kosode Gofukuten in the mid 19 the century. On rear cover the name Tominaga Shobei and a hand written Kyoto address are added. Inside the back cover the word Misaki is crossed out, maybe it's the name of the artist (?). A rare example of a complete hand written kimono design book from the late Edo period.
