About this Item

Wrappers. Bound Japanese-style, sewn. Sewing mostly out at top and bottom, center stitch holding, otherwise good condition. Front cover is a color woodblock with some gauffrage. Illustrations of woodblock prints. Text entirely in Japanese. 390 items. Kinbei (or Kimbei) Murata is recorded as having contributed prints to the Hiroshige Memorial Exhibition in 1917. He was a dealer in "curios" and issued a series of auction catalogues between 1913 and 1920. This particular sale took place on June 18-19, 1918. Fixed to back cover are two somewhat scrappy newspaper clippings in English advertising print exhibitions put on in Tokyo by a "connoisseur and collector," which we assume were contemporaneous and perhaps also due to Mr. Murata. The business card of a San Francisco firm of that date dealing in Asian art, Nathan Bentz & Co., is laid in. Browse our current list for more early Japanese-print references.
