Nanso Meigwaen
Celebrated Pictures of the Southern School

11 Volumes of a 20 Volume Set (1904-1910)

 

Nanso Meigwaen(Celebrated Pictures of the Southern School) (11 volumes of a 25 volume set), The Shimbi Shoin, Tokyo (13 Shinsakana-cho, Kyobashi-ku), 1904-199, issued in installments over a 6 year period, folio (19 1/4 x 13 1/2 in - 49 x 34.2 cm), folio, bound Japanese style, crepe type paper over cardboard wraps, ribbon ties, 10 black and white collotype plates in each volume (110 in total), text in Japanese. Each volume has a listing of plates. Each plate is preceded by a tissue guard with descriptive information regarding the plate (in Japanese). The collotype images are large and generally cover 65%-80% of the plate/page.

The covers are uniform in color (very light blue) but each has a different subtle white design on the front cover. While the covers are not numbered, each has a different seal at the bottom right. The number of the volume in the series is stated in the Japanese language table of plates.

Shimbi Shoin published price lists I have reviewed do not list the first edition of this set, as these volumes. However, the company price lists do reflect a "revised" edition published in 1912 containing 25 volumes with 10 black and white collotype plates per volume.

These 11 volumes are present:

  • #2 - 1904, Meiji 37.3
  • #8 - 1906, Meiji 39.5
  • #10 - 1906, Meiji 39.9
  • #11 - 1906, Meiji 39.10
  • #13 - 1907, Meiji 40.3
  • #14 - 1907, Meiji 40.6
  • #15 - 1907, Meiji 40.10
  • #20 - 1909, Meiji 42.2
  • #21 - 1909, Meiji 42.5
  • #22 - 1909, Meiji 42.8
  • #24 - 1910, Meiji 43.7
