HIKIFUDA. BISCUITS. FUGETSUDO. - [Inui Mushimochi Seizo no Yo Omomuki?].

Tokyo, Fugetsudo [189-?]. Lithograph broadside 27x39cm; with red and dull gold overprinting. Old fold, rather good. ¶ A dignified advertisement for Fugetsudo's western style biscuits delivered with the authority of what seems to be a barrage of gold awards and a view of their modern factory at work. The only date I can find is the first year of Meiji (1867) which is obviously historical. Today there are a few Fugetsudos, none of which seem to acknowledge the others but still trace their roots to the 18th century and their modern history from the great expansion and modernisation in the Meiji period. All make a speciality of Gaufres or Gaufrettes.
