Catalogue - furniture. Hasegawa Denjiro. - [Tansu : Mokuroku}.

Tokyo, Hasegawa 1907 (Meiji 40). 22x15cm publisher's printed wrapper; [2],32pp, illustrated throughout. Minor signs of use, quite good in original stamped postal envelope. Loosely inserted two sheets (one quite long) with text and an ink sketch of a cabinet on one and a careful measured pencil drawing on the other. This is a variant of their no.45. ¶ According to the introduction, this is the third catalogue of Tansu - mobile cabinets - from the workshop of Hasegawa, following catalogues in 1905 and 1906. NDL finds a 1905 copy which is a slight thing with 12 pages and 15 illustrations. I can't find a record of any others. This illustrates some fittings and 49 models with occasional concessions to westernisation. The greatest concession is, of course, mass production and mail order catalogues.
