Item Description: [Tokyo 1877-79, Nakamura]. Stitched yellow wrappers, title slips,issued in 2 parts:I:vols.1-3; II:vols.1-2, very clean, 111 woodblock illustrations, some double-page, contents very clean & solid, covers bit darkened. FIRST EDITION *** *** *** . . . JAPAN'S PREMIER SINGLE RESOURCE ON FALCONRY . . * A major resource on Japanese falconry, the capture, taming & teaching of falcons, the grooming, feeding and culture of the bird of prey. Wonderful illustrations of falcons, the associated tools & equipment, stands, methods of warming in winter before the hunt, winter hunting, respect for. On the flushing to expose game birds to be hunted by the falcon, the kill, capture of the quarry. How to tether, hoods, master's gloves and other accoutrements, field work, breeding, bathing &c. . * FIRST AND ONLY EDITION: This magnificent work was issued once in a single FIRST AND ONLY EDITION, and is complete in five volumes. The first series: 3 vols. were published in 1877, followed by the second series consisting of 2 volumes in 1879. Each volume has identifying title slips with: series 1: volumes jo, chu, ge in 3 parts]; series 2: the supplement jo, ge in 2 parts. . * PRINTING TECHNIQUE: This marvelous work uses crushed mica as an integral part of the hand-made Washi paper. These tiny flecks of mica give a sparkle to the illustrations, and are especially effective on the feather portion of the falcons. Mica gives a realistic and "high-tech" touch to the wood-cut printing technique. Printed by hand. . * Per Dr. Shigeru Oikawa, the eminent scholar on Kyosai, in a letter from him to us in 1998, he discusses the dates of the set. He stated: "Takakagami was, I think, first published in 3 volumes with the title .cover was blue or black. Then came the last 2 volumes .this time the.color was yellow. The exact date is not known but the first edition in 3 volumes [first series in vols. 1,2,3,] could be 1860's and some examples of the full set in 5 volumes has the date of 1875. Kyosai had finished all of the drawings in 1860's but the publication seemed to be delayed." . We have not found any supporting evidence to the above nor are these color covers cited in any bibliographies or other reference books stating any information about any 1875 edition. We have only found the 1877-79 edition. If the 1875 edition actually existed, by now it would have been listed in bibliographies. . *** KAWANABE KYOSAI: ARTIST & AUTHOR: * Per Brown: BLOCK PRINTING AND BOOK ILLUSTRATION, p.196. Kawanabe Kyosai aka.: Gyosai [1831-89] was a Kano painter, printmaker, illustrator, the son of a Samurai.

Loved drinking Sake, did some of his best work while under the influence, exhibited a the Vienna Intl. Exposition in 1873 & in Paris in 1883, where the West recognized his greatness. See below. . * Josiah Conder recognized his great talent & wrote a grand reference book on him: PAINTINGS AND STUDIES, Tokyo 1911. His famous KYOSAI GADEN, [L. Dawes p.92] was widely appreciated in Europe, it even had English captions for the foreign market! This was Kyosai's attempt to show the world a wide variety of ancient Japanese & Chinese painting styles; it is a magnificent set. . * COLLATION & SPECIAL ILLUSTRATING TECHINIQUES: None of the above reference books list details of a full set which was issued complete in 5 volumes: 3 + 2 vols. supplement. The full list of the set titles appears in the back of vol. 5 where a catalogue of Kyosai's titles are listed by the publisher. This title was issued as a serial in 1877,the supplemental 2 volumes in 1879. . * The collation of the set is: vol. 1,3,4,5, each have 10p.; vol. 2 has 11p. Every page is nicely illustrated, it contains some 111 illustrations in all. Most copies have mica-flecked paper that gives a sparkle and sheen to the bird's feathers. This technique is difficult.

Item Description: [Tokyo] 1866-80, 1866. [Tokyo, 1866-80],First edition,small 4to,(230 x 160mm.) 5 vols., (part 1, vols. 1-3: part 2, vols. 1-2), stitched Japanese-style into orig. yellow paper wrappers, each vol. with a white paper title-slip printed in red,illustrated throughout with Kyosai's magnificent woodcuts, the pict. woodcut titles of the first and fourth volumes on blue paper, the pasted-down leaves at the beginning and end of each vol. (with the exception of the two blue paper title-pages) being of mica-flecked Washi paper, stitched Japanese-style into orig. yellow paper wrappers, each vol. with a white paper title-slip printed in red, contained in a half tan morocco case. ".The book was published at Tokyo and the editor's name was Nakamura Sasuke. The 'Mirror of Hawks' is certainly a very comprehensive and instructive treatise on falconry. It is rare, only seven complete and incomplete copies having been traced in European libraries". Kawanabe Kyosai (1831-89) was a Kano painter, printmaker, and illustrator, the son of a Samurai. At the age of six he entered the studio of Utagawa Kuniyoshi, and from the age of nine became a student of the academic Kano school, studying under Maemura Towa and then Tohaku Chinshin, who gave him the name "Toiku". He exhibited at the Vienna International Exposition in 1873, and at the first and second Paris Japanese Art Exhibitions of 1883 and 1884. In the early years of the Meiji period (1868-1912) he attained considerable popularity with his political caricatures, for which he was arrested and imprisoned in 1870. His famous "Kyosai Gadan" (1887), an attempt to show a variety of traditional Japanese and Chinese painting styles, was widely appreciated in Europe, and was issued with English captions for the export market. Kyosai's "Ehon Taka Kagami" is the major resource on Japanese falconry, with wonderful woodcuts of hawks, field work, breeding, hoods, gloves, and other associated tools and items of equipment. It records the ancient Japanese methods of care, raising, and training of the Siberian Goshawk, considered the best variety for use in falconry since ancient times. Harting 371. Schwerdt III p. 245.
