Description

[2] pp. + 7 color plates & 124 black-and-white plates illustrating hundreds of objects + tabulation (pp. 125-49). All text in Japanese. Bound Japanese-style with ties in green-gold brocade with paper title label on cover. 30.4 x 22. cm. Largely ceramics, but also includes statuary, bronzes and metalware, screens, furniture, calligraphy, and stoneware. This is not modern or contemporary work. According to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this is one of seven such "exhibitions held at Takashimaya and Matsuzakaya, etc. in Osaka and Tokyo, 1934-1941 from Yi Hee-sup collection." The Met also specifies the publisher as Keijo: Keijo Bunmei Shokai, 1934-36, 1938-39, 1941. Only three copies in OCLC (the World Catalogue), two at University of California and the other at Seattle Art Museum. There is an unfortunate dent on the top edge of the front cover about 5 cm long by 3 mm deep and some damage to the brocade at the top of the backstrip. Covers faded with light soil. Corners worn. Endpapers lightly browned and minimal foxing on front edge, but nothing significant internally. **Free domestic or international shipping with direct order.
