KOKON MEIBA ZU I: GUIDE BOOK TO EXCELLENT HORSES, ANCIENT & MODERN.
- Japan n.d. ca. 1840'S. Yellow stitched stiff wrs., very good ca. 16 x 22.5 cm., 2 volume set, 10+10 double folded leaves, 18 double, 1 single color page illustrations, 2 pages Japan- ese text, complete. O B S C U R E W O R K This excellent work on Japanese horses is quite unusual. It covers horses for various uses in the Imperial court, as used by the highest-classes in Japan. For sacred Shinto festivals, archery competition, breeding, by the loyal ret- ainers of the court or the Samurai & military class. A fine look at Imperial horses, and their application in support of the royal court. A nice example of what the horses looked like, as well as their grooms, riders and equestrian equip- ment. Back of vol. 1 covers bit soiled, lacking title slips, else clean, solid and bright copy of a very obscure illustr- rated reference. Few color books exist on the subject of Japanese horses, let along Imperial horses !
