Wayo tejina no tane [trans.: Nuggets of Japanese & Western Magic].
Many woodcut illus. in the text (three in brilliant color, one of which is double-page). 22 folding leaves, one page. 12mo, orig. wrappers (rubbed, final two leaves with some worming not touching the text or illus.), orig. block-printed title label on upper cover, modern stitching. Tokyo: [Privately Printed & sold by Okura Magobei et al.], 1884. Apparently the first edition; WorldCat locates only a copy at the National Diet Library in Tokyo. The book begins with an index of 26 "tricks" or illusions, each described and well-illustrated in the text. There is a real mixture of Japanese and Western deceptions. Apart from the minor worming, a fine copy. Rare. .
