25 Color Collotype Plates
Ogawa, K. (Kazumasa)
The Hanami (Flower - Picnic) Described by S. Takashima, A.B., Reproduced and Published by K. Ogawa, F.R.P.S., Tokyo, Tokyo, K. Ogawa, 1897 (Meiji 30), distributed by Kelly & Walsh, Yokohama, large 4to (11 3/4 x 15 in - 30 x 38 cm), decorative cloth covered boards and spine, gilt edges, silk paste on title label, string tied (2), gold speckled and decorated inside covers (front and back) and facing page, one page of "Explanatory Notes," 25 tissue guard protected color collotype plates. All plates, except one (the flower plate), have a descriptive title in English at the bottom of the image. The flower collotype plate is a multi-pass color collotype plate as those found at the front of the Brinkley books. The others are lightly colored collotype plates.
I have examined this book with the same plates but in a different sequence. That book book is recorded here.
The present volume forms another addition to a series of photographs, illustrating different phases of Japanese life, which we have already published. The select views of the three well-known flower resorts in and near the capital, i.e. Uyeno, Mukojima and Koganei, herein contained are faithful representations of the Hanami (Flower-view). It is the Sakura, or cherry that carries away the hearts of little ones, young maidens, and some grown-up children in this country who take it seriously amiss not to try a picnic, when nature adorns the trees with roscate blossoms. With all its prosaic features, the Hanami in none the less an interesting and popular institution in Japan, and after once enjoying it the scene will long linger in the memory of the participant.
