- [Shingata Komon Chu?].

n.p. 1798? (Inscribed Kansei 10 on the back). 15x22cm wrappers labelled by hand; 36 double dark blue/indigo leaves with 72 patterns printed by stencil, most in white, six in a pinkish/mulberry colour. A remarkably good copy of a working book. There is an ink inscription inside the back cover that might have useful information but a brushed scrawl is beyond me. ¶ A charming sample book of new designs in fine patterns. Katazome, I think, applies to this type of indigo stencil textile pattern dyeing as well as to the larger, more illustrative designs.
