Kimono Designs - [Japanese Manuscript] - 9999. [1194143]
Japan, late Edo period (c. 1840s). Paperback. Good+. Original blue paper wraps; 318x205mm; contains approximately 100 original hand-drawn designs for kimonos, or other textile usage; pen and colored ink on rice paper. A curious kind of palimpsest, compiled by tipping the designs atop pages of a pre-existing text. Some worming, which contributes to the (in this cataloguer's opinion) pleasing chaos.
