Description
Title: The Pictorial Arts of Japan, with a Brief Historical Sketch of the Associated Arts, and Some Remarks Upon the Pictorial Art of the Chinese and Koreans Author: William Anderson F.R.C.S (Late Medical Office to H.M.'s Legation, Japan) Publication: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, London. 1886. 1st edition This title is one of a number of superb books produced on Japanese art in a decade which saw "Japonisme" sweep across the Western artistic world, particularly in Britain. Christopher Dresser and others brought Japanese art into middle class homes, and Gilbert and Sullivan produced the Mikado in 1885. This is a good copy of the book in its original binding with an illustrated cloth cover and tooled and gilt morocco spine, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. There is some light refurbishment of the binding, which is sound, with very minor rubbing of the corners. Internally there is a some foxing, to the text only, which is quite bad on the preliminaries (see image of title page), otherwise scattered. xix,{3}, 276 pages of text incorporating 146 illustrations, 80 plates (complete) of which 16 are chromolithographs, the others single colour lithograph or photogravure. Each plate also has a tissue guard printed on one side with cherry boughs or bamboo, on the other with descriptive text and illustrations. The chromolithograph plates were produced by Herr Greve of Berlin, and the photogravures by Messrs Lemercier et Cie of Paris. The woodcuts were engraved by native artists in Japan, with reduced facsimiles in the text by the Meisenbach Company.
