        Große ausserordentliche Vorstellung und vorletztes Auftreten des weltberühmten Athleten Holtum, sogenannten Kanonenkönigs. Für die heutige Vorstellung hat sich der Kutscher des Herrn Poststallmeisters Sedlmeyer, Bayerstr. Nr. 54 von hier gemeldet, um die ausgesetzte Prämie von 500 Mark zu gewinnen, die in Gegenwart des hochgeehrten Publikums ausbezahlt werden, wenn es ihm gelingen würde, Herrn Holtum mit seinen Pferden fortzuziehen. Zu gleicher Zeit Wiederholung der Produktionen mit 12 Stühlen und das Auffangen einer 20 Pfund schweren Kugel aus einer mit Pulver wirklich geladenen Kanone.

      München, Schuh, 12. Juli (1875). - Plakat mit typograph. Text und 2 Holzschnitten. Blattgr.: 84 x 57 cm. Auftritt des legendären Kraftakrobaten und "Kanonenkönigs" John Holtum (1845-1919), der mit der Hand eine aus einer Kanone abgefeuerte Kugel auffangen konnte. Bei der ersten Vorführung des Tricks 1872 im Londoner Holborn-Theater hatte er einen Finger seiner linken Hand eingebüßt. Der aus dem dänischen Hadersleben stammende Holtum wanderte mit 15 Jahren nach Amerika aus, wurde Goldgräber in Nevada, dann Mitglied eines Circus in San Francisco und kam schließlich 1870 zurück nach Europa. Seine außergewöhnliche Nummer machte ihn zu einem Star im europäischen Zirkus; seine körperliche Attraktivität bescherte ihm eine Unzahl weiblicher Bewunderer. Einige dieser "Groupies" unterzeichneten gar eine Petition, die Holtum vom Fangen der Kanonenkugel abhalten sollte, auf das sein makelloser Körper nicht Schaden davon nehmen möge. Holtum heiratete aber eine schöne Kunstreiterin und ließ sich nach dem Ende seiner Karriere in England nieder. - Holtum setzt hier eine hohe Prämie für jeden aus, der ihm seine Aufführung nachmachen könnte; probiert haben es über die Jahre 161 starke Männer, die aber allesamt versagten. 1880 wurde er dafür in Leeds gar angeklagt, da einer der Probanden, Elijah Fenton, den Versuch nicht unbeschadet überstand: "The first to try to catch the ball was Mr Fenton, but when the cannon was fired it struck him on the head and knocked him down. He was conveyed to the Infirmary, where it was found that his skull was fractured, and that he had received injuries to the nose". - Der obere Holzschnitt zeigt Holtum bäuchlings auf einer Bank liegend, mit den Händen hält er sich oben fest, zwei Pferde zerren sind mit Riemen an den Füßen Holtum gebunden und werden von 4 Männern enthusiastisch mit Peitschen vorangetrieben. Holtum hält der enormen Zugkraft stand, aber der der Zeichner hat die Szene komisch gestaltet: Ober- und Unterkörper sind getrennt und werden nur noch von Hosenträgern zusammen gehalten. Der untere Holzschnitt zeigt Holtum beim auffangen einer Kanonenkugel, umringt von staunenden Zuschauern. - Tls. etwas knittrig, linker Rand oben und unten etwas beschnitten.

        Ausserordentliche Vorstellung und erstes Auftreten in München des weltberühmten Athleten Holtum, sogenannten Kanonenkönigs. Bekannt durch die Pariser, Londoner und Leipziger illustrirten Zeitungen, Herr Holtum spielt und jonglirt mit 20, 30 und 60pfündigen Kanonenkugeln, wie ein Knabe kaum mit Orangen zu spielen vermag. Zum Schlusse dieser ausserordentlichen Produktion wird Herr Holtum eine wirkliche Kanone mit einer 20 pfündigen Kugel vor den Augen des Publikums laden und auf das Commando: "Feuer" die Kugel mit den Händen auffangen. Zu diesem fast unglaublichen Experiment ladet Herr Holtum alle wissenschaftlichen Männer Münchens ganz ergebenst ein, die Kanone und Kugel genau zu untersuchen.

        A JOURNAL OF RAMBLINGS THROUGH THE HIGH SIERRAS OF CALIFORNIA BY THE "UNIVERSITY EXCURSION PARTY."

      San Francisco: Francis & Valentine, 1875. 20th-century three-quarter morocco and blue cloth, spine gilt. Spine sunned. Frontispiece photograph with three small stains, and the final two photographs exhibiting some moderate fading, else quite clean internally. A very good copy. A rare photographically illustrated account of a tour of Yosemite and the High Sierras, by one of the pioneer founders of the University of California. LeConte studied with Agassiz at Harvard before going to California to serve as professor of geology, and he was among the charter members of the Sierra Club. This work describes LeConte's first expedition, with students of the University, into the Sierras, and the text wonderfully conveys LeConte's enthusiasm for the region and its natural beauty. In his autobiography he describes his first years in California as "very active ones for me, the wonderful new country, so different from any that I had previously seen, the climate, the splendid scenery, the active, energetic people, and the magnificent field for scientific, and especially for geological investigations...." "A record of an excursion by Prof. LeConte and nine members of one of the early classes of the university. It is stated that but 20 copies were printed" - Cowan. The actual number of copies printed was almost certainly higher, perhaps as many as 120 (twelve for each member of the party). A beautiful book, with superb photographs depicting the range of northern California's natural splendor. The images are captioned on the mounts as follows: 1) "...Great Yosemite Fall" (frontispiece group portrait of the party). 2) "The Grizzly Giant...." 3) "The High Sierras...." 4) "The Gates of the Valley...." 5) "Bridal Veil Fall...." 6) "The Heart of the Sierras. Lake Tenaya." 7) "Day-Dawn in Yosemite. The Merced River." 8) "...North Dome, South (Half) Dome...." 9) "Montgomery St., San Francisco. Where our trip ended." HOWES L175. COWAN (1914), p.137.

        Bridgman's Map of the Suburbs of New York City Embracing the Territory Occupied by the Homes of New York Businessman

      New York, 1875. Folding pocket map, full period hand-colouring. (Flattened, separations at folds repaired). With the original cloth covers, containing 8pp. Index and an ad for Bridgman on the front pastedown. Colourful 19th century pocket map of the New York and New Jersey suburbs, with all the railroad routes into the city shown. Before the "bridge and tunnel" crowd came the "rail and ferry" commuters. Following the Civil War, a new class of entrepreneurs created a fast growing upper/middle class which began building homes in the suburbs of Westchester and Northern New Jersey. Development of the transportation into the city quickly followed and this map was published by Bridgman for these "New York Businessmen." This map, on a scale of two and half miles to the inch, depicts the greater metropolitan area, roughly centered on Newark, NJ, as far north as the New York/New Jersey state line, as far south as Freehold, NJ, as far east as Inglewood, NY and as far west as Bedminster, NJ. The lower left corner is distorted out of scale to include Trenton. A profusion of towns are named, along with roads, waterways and some businesses. The area's many railroad lines are prominently shown, with the Westchester lines terminating at the new Grand Central Depot (opened 1871). Although there is no date on the map, it was published circa 1875 based on the fact that Grand Central Depot is named, there are no bridges over the East River and Morrisania is shown as part of New York County. Haskell, Manhattan Maps 1379 (suggesting a date of 1885).

        LES RUINES DE PARIS EN 4875. DOCUMENTS OFFICIELS ET INÉDITS.

      Paris: Librairies Léon Willem ... Paul Daffis ... ,. 1875. original Japanese velum printed in black.. A fine copy. (#151230). First edition. Limited to 250 copies of which this is one of 236 numbered copies printed on Holland paper. A pessimistic vision of the future in which the ruins of Paris, destroyed two thousand years before by an apocalyptic cataclysm, are discovered by an expedition from Nouméa in Caledonia. Nearby a modest city inhabited by a group of semi-savages who speak a language similar to French is discovered. The description of the society of its inhabitants offers Franklin the chance to ridicule the ancient and recent customs of the French. The government of Nouméa funds the excavation and restoration of the city of Paris to its former glory and the archeologists from the three principal Nouméan Academies (Arts, Humanities and the Sciences) make funny misinterpretations of many of the artifacts they find (a similar, much later satire in the same vein is Robert Nathan's THE WEANS).

        SEIYOH MONJI CHIE: WISDOM OF THE WESTERN ALPHABET.

      [Japan, 1875]. A small folding album, 8 x 17 cm., original. blue covers, [18]p., accordion folded, soiled covers, verso. blank, but evidence of a Japanese practicing his attempt at. writing in English alphabet,128 color woodcut illustrations.. USE THE WESTERN ALPHABET TO TEACH JAPANESE A very charming early attempt to teach the Japanese English alphabetical letters and numerals. Folded and reading from traditional left to right, this work shows the Japanese the familiar "IROHA" alphabet in both Katakana & Romanized alph- abetical letters [Romaji], with Hiragana above. The most fa- scinating part are the profuse color woodblock illustrations of familiar Japanese objects, each with Romanized letters & the appropriate Japanese. Such cute things as Inu, Roonin, Hato, Niwatori, Potsukkuri [Pokkuri], Hyotan, Tonbo, Ringo, Dobin, Soroban, Taiko, Daikon,Yoroi, Wakizashi, Kani, Katsuo and a plethora of others. This work basically was used to train the Japanese to read Romaji first for familiar objects and thus begin the process of learning English ultimately to read English letters. Works of this subject are now quite RARE and seldom come to market, many were basically used up in the learning process. This example well used, cover soil, bit thumbed, but remarkably complete. Back cover has the Sumi penned date: Meiji 7 nen, with a later cover title slip pasted on, and Sumi ink title written. Brief commentary on the English language, some text worn away, balance complete.

        Prospectus and Report of the Howland and Aetna Tunnel Companies

      Very Good. First Edition. Softcover. Folded quarto sheet pamphlet. San Franscisco? Circa 1875. Rare stock prospectus related to raising capital for the completion of two tunnels at Little Cottonwood, Utah Territority. A significant portion of text is taken from very positive report of mining engineer George Tew, with positive comparisons with the Sutro Tunnel. The company was headquartered in San Fransisco. Prospectus states, "So much of the stock will be sold at a bed-rock price, as will enable the Directors to push each tunnel until sufficient ore can be taken out to pay the working expenses." The Howland Tunnel was located on a claim filed by William H. Howland in 1872 in Little Cottonwood Canyon, and the Aetna Tunnel was located across the canyon. Both tunnels suffered from lack of funds. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 4 pp .

        Kaisei rikugun fukusei zu [Army Dress Code Amendments].

      Tokyo: Rikugunsho, 1875 - Quarto (274 × 181 mm). Original Japanese fukuro-toji, pouch binding, double-punched with green silk, and jute ties, original printed paper wraps with thin linen spine. Wraps somewhat damped, rubbed and a little soiled, spine with some chipping, marginal worming towards the rear, almost entirely marginal, very slight encroachment on a few images, but overall very good, plates clean and the colour bright, a number with lightly pencilled annotation in English. 264 hand-coloured plates on 132 Japanese-style double leaves First edition of this uncommon catalogue of Meiji Restoration military uniforms, OCLC , locates just three copies, the National Diet Library, LoC, and University of Michigan. Clearly illustrates how the modernising Japanese Army adopted uniforms resembling those of their American Civil War advisors, and the French Third Empire. Early in the 1870s the Meiji Emperor and Saga Saneharu, his Minister of Justice, issued a series of edicts establishing regulations governing the uniforms of civil officials, nobles, and the military, and this contemporary hand-coloured catalogue clearly reflects the Western influence on uniform design at the time. The illustrations begin with the blue kepi for the various ranks, with rank indicated by combinations of braid and stars on the top; officer's jackets, shown front and back; epaulettes; uniform sleeve braids in blue and gilt; detailed images of aiglettes with diagrams of their construction, dark blue trousers with distinguishing side stripes of white, blue, green (cavalry), red (infantry), artillery (yellow), purple (quartermaster corps), and more. Of particular interest is the section on sabres and other swords, scabbards, hilts, ornaments and trappings many with finely-detailed diagrams of the pattern of decoration; together with accoutrements such as belts, buckles, and spurs for cavalry officers and servicemen, many images heightened with hand-applied gilt. This exhaustive survey also includes the more practical overcoats, raincoats and capes, work-wear, leather gaiters and spats. These uniforms were in service through the Boshin War of 1868-9, and the Satsuma Rebellion in 1877, some were subsequently modified in 1886 to resemble more closely the Imperial German uniforms which were becoming favoured, and then used with minor changes during the Sino-Japanese War of 1894. Highly attractive visual reference for Japanese military costume during this interesting period. See Nakata & Nelson, Imperial Japanese Army and Navy Uniforms and Equipment (1987).

        Artist's Sketchbook

      Wisconsin 1875 - Marbled cardstock wraps, cloth backstrip; oblong, 210 x 175 mm; contains 20 beautiful pencil sketches. Includes portraits of men and women; a horse; a table with a book on it; The Reservoir, Looking South, From Centre Street (Wisconsin landscape); Schoolhouse Bluff, from the Depot, Mazomanie (Wisconsin landscape); Black Hawks Cliff, Wisconsin River; The Wisconsin River, Looking Up from Kilbourn City; In Cold Water Canyon, Dells; Mouth of Cold-Water Canon; Diamond Grotto, Dells; In Witches Glen, Dells; Devil's Doorway, Devil's Lake, Wisconsin; Natural Walls, Devil's Lake; Devil's Lake, from the East Shore; and 2 drawings of men in a sailboat. Front cover bent; small chip at bottom corner of front cover and first few leaves (tho images are unscathed). All drawings appear on the recto only (as such, removable, and suitable for display). These drawings are from relatively early in the artist's career, perhaps while we was still a student. They are as strong as his later, professional work, and they are more careful and polished than his later work -- he was clearly honing his skill. Remarkable. Harley DeWitt Nichols (1859-1939) was born in Barton, Wisconsin. He began his education in art as early as 11 years of age. His first job putting his talent and training to use came in the form of an apprenticeship with the Milwaukee firm Marr & Richards, where he stayed for 3 years, drawing and engraving on wood. The subsequent years included many moves, from Milwaukee to Chicago, and later to New York, where he studied at ASL and was encouraged by Professor Packard to pursue a career as an illustrator at a European school. Nichols left for Munich in October 1885 to attend the Royal Academy, where he studied under Heckel, became a member of the American Club, and socialized with Carl von Marr, the club’s president. He went to London for a little while, and worked as an illustrator. By 1893 he’d returned to New York, working mostly in advertising, and illustrating for Harper’s Weekly and Century magazines. He helped organize the New York Water Color Club. Nichols didn’t curb his parapatetic lifestyle until he moved to Laguna Beach, California, in 1894. The art community in Los Angeles was in its infancy, but he got a teaching job at the Echo Mountain summer school, and he was inspired by the scenery of Yosemite, Monterey, San Juan Capistrano, and other locations in southern California. He stayed in Laguna Beach until his death in 1939. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        HIGAYON LEV ISRAELITISCHES GEBETBUCH FÜR DIE HÄUSLICHE ANDACHT [INCLUDING THE FIRST AMERICAN REFORM HAGGADAH] [BOUND WITH] GEBETE FU¨R KINDER [AS ISSUED] (1875) .

      Philadelphia: 1875.. Hardback. 1st edition thus. Original cloth binding, 8vo,  [4], 164, 20 pages (188 pages total) . Text in Hebrew and German. Goldman 63; This edition unrecorded and apparently unknown to Ya'ari or Yudlov. THE FIRST AMERICAN REFORM HAGGADAH. Higayon Lev (Logic of the Heart) was a liturgical volume for private devotion which was published to supplement the popular Avodat Yisrael prayerbook that Jastrow had created, based on the earlier work of Benjamin Szold. Jastrow?'s revisions ?"creatively modified the classical contours of the Siddur preserved in Szold?'s version and added many new prayers. ?" Among its contents are: selections from Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers) ; daily prayers for women, children (and adults who lack the time to complete the regular liturgy) , all accompanied by a non-literal German translation. There is also a fascinating appendix of children?'s prayers which includes, in addition to the more standard basic prayers, special prayers to be recited on one?'s birthday as well as on a parent?'s birthday. The most important component of the new edition however is Jastrow's Haggadah, (pages 35-54) , the first printed in America that demonstrates the influence of Reform. Here, the Hebrew elements are reduced to a minimum and incorporate many emendations, even to such quintessential texts as Ha Lahma Anya, Vehi She?'amdah and the Four Questions (here reduced to a single query) .   When Jastrow reprinted the text with an English translation three years later, he wrote, "this plain narrative is well adapted to suggest many a thought as to what duties are incumbent on the Israelites of our own days, and especially in countries like ours where the morn of religious liberty has already dawned and is shedding its roseate light over all inhabitants alike. ?" SUBJECT(S) : Judaism -- Prayers and devotions. Reform Judaism -- Liturgy -- Texts. Siddurim. OCLC lists 8 copies worldwide. Some wear and light staining, in the original blind-tooled binding, is (kh-6-1) .

        LE CAPITAL

      Paris: Maurice Lachatre et Cie., 1875. Quarto. Recent cloth, gilt label. Portrait. Pictorial title-page. Alternate pictorial title from first wrapper of parts issue. Facsimile letter. Text in double columns. Modest foxing early and late, some hand smudges and a few marginal nicks to first two leaves, but generally a very good copy. First edition in book form of the first translation into French of the first volume of DAS KAPITAL, first issued in parts from 1872-75. The translation was undertaken by M.J. Roy, with the intimate collaboration of Marx himself, who acknowledges the importance of his own substantive revisions in his postscript to the text (dated London 28 April 1875), emphasizing the independence of this text from that of the first edition. This printing includes rather ornate engraved head and tail pieces (somewhat out of character with the text itself), earning it the curious sobriquet of the "first illustrated edition." This copy has the following features which are generally taken to indicate the first issue: a) "1er livraison" and "Prix de la livraison: dix centimes" at the lower corners of the engraved title; b) engravings of buildings, a city square and obelisk on main title; c) ornate imprint of "typographie Lahure" on verso of title; and d) the text of a letter from Maurice Lachatre to Marx on the verso of the facsimile of Marx's letter to him. These features were either altered or omitted from the second "issue" of ca. 1878 issued under the imprint of the LIBRAIRIE DU PROGRESS. When the first translation into English was undertaken ten years later, Moore and Aveling, under Engels's editorial direction, incorporated the important revisions published first in this edition into their text.

        Digest of Patents relating to breech-loading and magazine small arms, (except revolvers) granted in the United States from 1836 to 1873, inclusive. Classified and arranged according to the movement of the principal parts for opening and closing the breech

      Washington, 1875. Quarto. (11 5/8 x 9 inches). 1p. small format errata tipped onto rear pastedown. 780 patent-drawings photo-lithographed (up to ten to a page) on 84 full-page illustrations by N. Peters of Washington. Bound to style in half calf over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, ruled in gilt on each band, lettered direct in the second and fourth compartments Provenance: Allen P. Westcott (Chicago, firearms consultant in legal cases, ink stamp) An important and rare work on American breech loading and small arms, published in a relatively small edition. No copies of this work are listed as having sold at auction, but it was important and rare enough to warrant a facsimile reprint in 1963. On the dust-jacket of that edition it was noted that the "Digest is the only existing compilation of U.S. Patents of breech-loading and repeating small arms ... As a means for identifying trial or experimental pieces (usually unmarked on the guns themselves) this reference work is without parallel." The Preface describes the work as follows: "This digest has been prepared from the official records of the United States Patent Office, and with a view to present the subject in a brief yet comprehensive manner, for the information of inventors, manufacturers, attorneys and others interested in the art. It has been the purpose of the compiler to group all patents relating to breech-loading and magazine fire-arms granted in the United States ... in such a manner that they may be readily referred to, and the numerous and important improvements made in both sporting and military arms, traced. All inventions ... have been classified and arranged according to well-defined characteristics or systems, depending upon the movement of the principal parts for opening and closing the breech. The index of names is an alphabetical-chronological list of inventors, and is the key, in connection with the number or date, by which information ... may be obtained from the Patent Office."

        Church and State; or, Christian Liberty. An earnest address on the Establishment of the Hierarchy. With an Introduction & Notes by his Son

      Longmans & Co, London, 1875. Fourth Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket as issued. Inscribed by person(s) connected with book. Published originally in 1851, this work was first published as a response to political tensions in England following the perceived aggressive actions of the Papacy in promoting English Catholic interests over those of the Established Church, and it was then re-published in 1875 by Pugin's son as a counter to Gladstone's claim against Catholics that they "had forfeited their moral and mental freedom" following the decrees of the First Vatican Council in 1870 regarding Papal Infallibility. Edward Pugin's intention in republishing the work was to caution Catholic opinion from challenging the authority of the State in these circumstances. An interesting publication overall, giving insight to the tensions between the Catholic Church and state in England in the decades following Catholic Emancipation. Hand written inscription to the Bishop of Shrewsbury by E. Welby Pugin to front blank, and bookplate of Bishop of Shrewsbury on front pastedown. Rare in any edition, this, the 4th edition, contains a tipped-in facsimile letter in the hand of John Henry Newman, dated Feb 10th, 1875 at The Oratory regarding his appreciation of Pugin's work (Newman was a surprising supporter in the circumstances, as he and Augustus Pugin had suffered quite a poor relationship in general). Together with a portrait frontis of Pugin, an introduction by Pugin's son, and reprinted letters from W.E.Gladstone , and Canon H.P.Liddon. Some very light browning to the edges of the title page. Original dark green cloth, gilt, dark red fore-edges. a very good, clean and crisp copy of this rare work. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 68 pages.

        Der Thierbändiger Herr Delmonico mit seinen 5 dressirten Löwen in einem prachtvollen Wagenkäfig.

      Leipzig, Oskar Leiner, ca. 1875.Einblattdruck auf gelbem Papier, mit drei großen Holzschnitten. 46,5 x 64 cm. Der 1843 in Philadelphia geborene Ledger Delmonico (d. i. Joseph Ledger) kaufte von Hagenbeck 6 Löwen, baute einen aufwendigen Käfig und ging von England nach Deutschland zum Circus Renz, der ihn hier mit diesem wundervollen Plakat bewirbt. In England war er Mitarbeiter des Wandermenagerie - Unternehmers Kreutzberg, dessen Tochte Anna er 1866 in Norwich heiratete; was für die Zeit für einen dunkelhäutigen Mann durchaus ungewöhnlich war. - Oben in einem Medaillon das Portrait des Delmonico, darunter zwei Abbildung von Löwenhäuptern. - Carl Hagenbeck erwähnet die Begegnung mit Delmonico in seinen Memoiren (Von Tieren und Menschen: Erlebnisse und Erfahrungen. Berlin 1908): "Meinen ersten Versuch als Tierbändiger machte ich in der Mitte der siebziger Jahre, aber nicht etwa öffentlich. Damals verkaufte ich an den Neger Ledgar (sic!) Delmonico, der in England als Tierbändiger einen bedeutenden Ruf hatte, drei junge Löwen und drei junge Tiger, welche Delmonico während eines Vierteljahres in einem eigens gebauten Wagenkäfig bei mir dressierte. Er behauptete, daß niemand außer ihm es wagen würde, den Käfig zu betreten. Als er mich aber am letzten Tage vor seiner Abreise mit der Frage neckte, ob ich nicht von meinen Freunden Abschied nehmen wolle, machte er die Rechnung ohne den Wirt. Obgleich ich bei weitem noch nicht die Erfahrung besaß, die mir heute zur Seite steht, so wußte ich doch schon ganz genau, wieweit ich den Tieren trauen konnte. Ohne weiteres ließ ich den Sicherheitskäfig vorhängen, begab mich zu den Tieren Delmonicos, befahl, daß man mir von draußen die Requisiten zu reiche, genau in der Art, wie auch Delmonico sich die Geräte hatte geben lassen, und machte dem verblüfften Tierbändiger nun die ganze Dressur vor, die er selbst mit seinen Tieren einstudiert hatte".

S C A R C E. A VERY CHARMING DESIGN BOOK BY JAPAN'S GREATEST ARTISTS These designs were the inspiration for the craftsmen who worked on Tsuba, Menuki, sword furniture, lacquer ware, tex- tiles, ceramics, Netsuke, Inro, Kimono & Obi. Some of these designs are clearly extracted from the Midare or "cloud pat- terns" found on Japanese sword blades, some are based on sea & foam, waves, water related, the Buddhist swastika & Mand- ala, Buddhist wheel of life, other Buddhist symbols. Also mythological dragons, stylized birds and other animals, most of these are the basis for Tsuba. Stylized flower patterns & a host of others were made into textile patterns, embroid- ery work and again applique to ceramics and lacquereware. A superb resource and inspiration for any designer or student of art. What makes this design book exceptional, is the face that the compiler has given tribute to the most famous art- ists of the past by listing their names on the front cover including Tani Bunsho, Kikuike and a host of others who have made Japan's designs famous throughout the world.Brilliantly done.
