Kuroda Masanori. - [Tojiki Isho Hyohon].

Dainippon Ceramic Industry Association, 1895 (Meiji 28). 24x17cm publisher's decorated wrapper (a bit marked); 30 woodcut (and lithograph?) plates on 15 double leaves, 12 colour, the rest printed in black or blue. Rather good. ¶ A scarce and intriguing pattern book of mostly fancy ceramics - what I'd call export stuff - issued by the industry association with enough plates detailing both form and decoration to be most useful. So who is for? A guide for the trade or for the customer? Maybe both. Given that two of the three copies I've traced were pretty revolting I'd guess trade. Worldcat finds no copies outside Japan.
