Tamamura, Kozaburo (presumed):
Geo. H. Macy & Co., Japan and China, c1910, oblong 8vo (8 1/2 x 6 in), straw covered boards with hand painted illustrations on front board, single silk tie, spine covered, 30 pages of black and white collotype plates reproducing photographs, no tissue guards, 30 pp. The image areas vary but measure 4 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches and larger. Below each image is a brief descriptive caption. There are no text pages, title page or colophon and the publisher or printer is not stated. This book is a pictorial review of the various tea production act ivies of the George H. Macy Company in Japan and China. It covers that company's operations in Japan (Kobe & Yokohama) and China (Shanghai, Taiphei Formosa, Hankow & Amoy). It also includes general interest, not tea related, views of Japan.

While the book is undated, I believe that it dates from the early 1900s based upon the images. Some images appear to be from the late 1890s.

No publisher is stated. However, this book is very similar in nature to the same types of collotype books produced by T. Tamamura of Yokohama and his successor T. Takagi of Kobe. Three images in this book are found in similar T. Tamamura books (see below). Information on the Tamamura and Takagi books is here.
