The complete set, bound in brightly coloured floral brocaded silk, with varying patterns, and paper label to front board. The editor of this set, Francis Brinkley (1841-1912), was born in Ireland and educated at Trinity College, before moving on to a military career beginning with his accepance at the Royal Military College, Woolwich, where he trained as an artillery officer. After graduation, he was invited by his cousin, then the Governor of Hong Kong, to serve as his aide-de-camp and adjutant. In 1867 he was attached to the British-Japanese Legation and, still being an officer in the Royal Artillery, served as assistant military attache to the Japanese Embassy. In 1871, he resigned his commission and began studying the Japanese language and culture in earnest. Eventually, he married a Japanese woman, with whom he had three children. He also owned and edited the "Japan Mail" which became the most influential English language newspaper in the far East. This set, the Yedo Edition, is designated no. 482 of only 1,000 issued, and presents a stunning portrayal of Japanese life, customs, cities, and the countryside.

The flower colour plates still quite vivid. The "Yedo" Edition: a numbered set of ten volumes. Bookseller Inventory # 042808
