Japanese Types
1905, 30 Lithographed Illustrations



Patton, Emily S. (text)
Schwabe, Minnie A. (illustrations) (d. 1918):
Japanese Types, Sketched with Brush and Pen by Minnie A. Schwabe and Emily S. Patton, Yokohama, Kelly and Walsh, LTD., large (8 3/8 x 11 in - 21.3 x 27.8 cm), 1905, paper over thick card covers, front board with decoration and lettering, back cover blank, spine covered with paper, two cord ties, card stock paper throughout (.16 mm thick), free page at front, preface/list of subjects with lithographed illustrations, colophon at rear, 30 pages of text and 30 lithographed plates. The text, written by Emily Patton, appears to the left and the lithographed images, drawn by Millie A. Schwabe, to the right. Text is printed on the back of the preface/list of plates page and the back of each lithographed plate except for the back of the last lithographed plate which is blank.

While the book is frequently described as 4to in published descriptions, I believe large 8vo (imperial octavo) is a more precise size description for the book with card covers.
