Condition. The books are in Very Good condition. The covers have light soiling/toning. All the tissue guards (inserted loose as issued) are present in No. 1. There are no tissue guards in No. 2.

General Comments Regarding this Set of Books. I believe that this is a set of four volumes that were published during the period from 1954 through 1964. I have only actually confirmed volumes No. 1, 2 and 4. The books are the same size and bound in the same manner. This set is a collection of Serizawa's "sho'hinshu" works (small works like bookplates, matchbox covers, book covers, New Year's cards, etc).
No. 1 (January, 1954). 58 small size Serizawa katazome stencils tipped, at the top, to 20 pages. Wrap-around case. Contents insert. Loose tissue guards. Limited to 100 unnumbered copies.
