Ogawa, Kazumasa:
Famous Castles and Temples of Japan by K. Ogawa, Photographer, Tokyo, Kelly and Walsh, Yokohama, HongKong, Shanghai and Singapore, Sole Agents, Meiji 31 (1898), large 4to (10 3/8 x 14 3/4 in - 26.4 x 37.4 cm), decorated green cloth over thin boards, two blue or red cord ties, paste on title in black and gilt, gilt speckled end papers, all edges gilt, loose tissue guards between the plates, title page, list of plates (Nos. 1-37), 37 hand colored collotype plates, Japanese language colophon, all pages printed on one side only. Each plate has an English language descriptive caption printed on the plate directly below the image.

I have personally examined this book with 35 plates and 37 plates. All plates are the same and in the same sequence with two additional plates found at the rear of the 37 plate book. The title pages are the same. The 37 plate book lists plates 36 and 37. All 37 plates are shown on this page.

I have seen this book listed with a date of 1895 and with 36 plates. Wenckstern references the book as undated and with 36 plates. It is possible the book was published earlier (ca 1895) and perhaps only with black and white collotype plates.
