Fifty-four-page manuscript in Japanese on sake company logos
[?Tokyo]. 1857. "27 leaves, stab bound, recent cover added with original cover bound in; dealer's blind stamp on back inner cover; minor soiling; very good.& & The sake industry came into its own during the Edo period, where a system of distribution was established involving wholesalers and middlemen that moved product from the thousands of breweries throughout the country into various markets. This book is an artifact of that system, being a catalog of sake brands listed by distributor, likely produced for the reference of an individual wholesaler. For each brand the icon is reproduced in a bold hand, with the name of the brand listed immediately below. Over 300 producers are represented, with many of them still in business to this day.& "
