Descriptive Tissue Guards
Selected Relics of Japanese Art, 20 Volume Set
Each plate (or group of plates when they share a common characteristic) is preceded by a protective descriptive tissue guard. The paper is single (unfolded) and the same very thin paper that is used on the collotypes which are folded and have a stiffener in the middle. The descriptions on the tissue guard a key feature of the work. They are detailed and very informative. The Japanese description is on the top and below that the English version.
There are a total of 755+ pages of these descriptive tissue guards which accompany the 980+ plates in the 20 volume set. Generally, they take one page (Japanese and English text) but occasionally the description is so extensive that they require a separate page for each description.
The descriptions generally contain:
Kakemono. A Japanese paper or silk wall hanging, usually long and narrow, with a picture or inscription on it and a roller at the bottom.
