Japanaj Vidajoj Kaj Moroj
Esperanto Version of
Sights and Scenes in Fair Japan, 1914
By Kazumasa Ogawa (Ogaua)

 

Ogawa, K. (Kazumasa)
Takahasi, K:
Japanaj Vidajoj Kaj Moroj, Tokyo, Taisho 3 (1914), Oblong 8vo (19 x 25.5 cm), cardboard covers, 50 black and white collotype plates, no maps, organized in Western style reading from front to back. No text, just collotype plates printed on one side only of thin paper. Each plate has a typeset descriptive title in Esperanto and Japanese. There is a one page introduction (Antauparolo) by Ingeniero K. Takahasi of Hiroshima. Each plate measures 7 1/2 x 10 in - 19 x 25.5 cm. Image areas vary but are generally 6 x 4 1/2 in - 10.5 x 15.5 cm. The collotype plates cover a wide range of views in Japan with an emphasis on scenic, religious and historic places. While published in 1914, this is a later printing of a book that was first published at the turn of the century and captures views of Japan as the country passed into the 20th century. The plates in this book replicate those found in an English language edition published in 1917.
