[JAPANESE SCRAP-BOOK OF OLD STENCIL FOR WEAVING]. - Sekishin Mon-hon (?). (Hand written title on front cover). Kyoto, Shimizu Kiemon, probably 1840's.

Size: 21 x 30 cm. A manual with 14 inserted stencil-fabrics with Japanese caption labels and 3 stencil prints on paper at end. Original paper wrappers, worn. Seishin Mon-Ho might be the title written on front cover meaning "New Weaving Pattern Book". This sample manual used to belong to the kimono shop in Kyoto named Shimizu Kiemon (Kamaza-dori, San-jo, Agaru) - the shop's stamp on verso of title. The shop was active in the Kaei period (1848-54). Subsequently this manual belonged to Tatsumura Orimono, an exclusive fabric shop in Kyoto founded in 1894. Some time ago they sold many books from their collection and we believe this might be one of them.
