[CHINA - BOARD GAME].
Jeu Nouveau le Voyage a Pékin par Air, par Fer, par Terre et par Mer (title on lid). Paris, H. Jannin, ca 1861.
Lithographed board game (48 x 48 cm). Hand-coloured and printed in green and black on four cardboard panels pasted on green cloth, with Bordeaux red mauve patterned paper on reverse, slightly rubbed. Housed in the original mauve patterend paper covered box (small loss of label). Printed rules inside the lid. Some staining to front cover and the lower cover has been nicely restored. The game offers various routes via balloon, railway, overland or sea voyage, along a grid to the exotic and mysterious city of Peking in the centre. The design of the grid strikingly resembles Chinese city maps of the period. Ornamented with beautiful hand-coloured vignettes in the corners. A well-preserved game published just after the Second Opium War.

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

SERIZAWA, KEISUKE:
Okinawa Fûbutsu. Tokyo, Shôwa 23 (1948).
Large 8vo (21 x 26,8 cm). A privately printed orihon folding album. Comprising Japanese title, colophon and eight-double page coloured illustrations printed in the katazome stencil dyeing technique on handmade paper. Original dark-purple paper wrappers with title label. Housed in the original paper folder. First edition, limited to 150 copies.

Includes vivid and colourful illustrations of daily life at the market, traditional costumes and typical Ryky bingata textiles. A few are printed in black and brown depicting pottery-making, temple life and traditional houses. A lovely copy of this unusual and very delightful work. Keisuke Serizawa (1895-1984) was a renowned Japanese textile designer who was promoted by the Japanese government for his unique katazome method. This is an original hand dyeing method using stencils to create patterns. He produced textiles for kimonos, wall scrolls, curtains, fans, paper prints, and he illustrated books. He visited Okinawa several times and learned the Ryky bingata techniques of dyeing.
