Dated 1897

The book, which translates to “Women’s Customs and Manners”, consists of 36 prints, all in excellent color and condition except No. 36, which has stains that migrated from the metallic printing on the interior back cover. Each print appears fresh with unfaded colors, some with embossing and metallic printing. Each print has the date and publisher’s information in the left margin. Dated Meiji 30 (1897), publisher: Matsuki Heikichi. The book is bound in traditional Japanese fashion with silk cords binding the prints together at the spine. The first page consists of the title and explanation. It too has been stained from migrated metallic printing on the interior cover. The second page lists the titles of each print. On the inside of the back cover the publisher’s information is given in English as well as a small reproduction of an early print of a street peddler. This sticker suggests an edition for English speaking clients or for export to England. The exterior covers show some wear and light brown staining.

This is an opportunity to own an entire series in excellent condition for about half the cost of buying the prints individually.

Height: 14 in.; Width: 10 1/8 in.
