Ogawa, Kazumasa:
Famous Castles and Temples in (of) Japan by K. Ogawa, Tokyo, large 4to (10 3/8 x 14 3/4 in - 26.4 x 37.4 cm), decorated green silk cloth over thin boards, two blue or red cord ties, paste on title with black lettering and gilt decoration, gilt speckled treatment inside the covers and on the facing free pages, all edges gilt, tissue guards between the plates, title page, 35 or 37 hand tinted collotype plates, all plates are printed on one side only, Japanese language colophon, no text preface pages. Each plate has an English language descriptive caption copperplate printed on the plate directly below the image.

I have personally examined this book with 35 plates and 37 plates. There are two different versions of the 35 plate book. I call these Type A and Type B.

  • Type A, 35 plate edition (1895). Title page only indicates only K. Ogawa. The title is "...in Japan" versus "...of Japan." The 35 hand tinted collotype plates have captions but they are not numbered. The tissue guards are bound in, not loose. There is no listing of plates. This edition has colophon slip bound in after the last plate. The Japanese language colophon gives Meiji 28 (1895) as the printing and publication date. This edition appears to be the first edition published. Except for one plate, this book has the same plates as found in the Type B, 35 plate edition. The sequence of the plates is very different (see below). A separate page devoted only to the Type A, 35 plate (1895) edition is here.
  • Type B, 35 plate edition and 37 plate edition (1898). Title page indicates "K. Ogawa, Photographer," and Kelly and Walsh, Yokohama, HongKong, Shanghai and Singapore, Sole Agents. The title is "...of Japan" versus "...in Japan." The 35 or 37 hand tinted collotype plates all have numbered captions printed below the image and are protected by loose tissue guards. The Japanese language colophon is printed to page and has a printing and publication date of Meiji 31 (1898). The books contain a list of plates (Nos. 1-35 or 1-37). All plates are the same and in the same sequence with two additional plates found at the rear of the 37 plate book.

This page shows all the plates from the 1898 editions. To see the plates in the 1895 edition (Type A, 35 plate edition), click here.

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. However, I have only examined editions of this book with 35 or 37 plates.
