Matched Set.

This is a matched set. The boards are all covered with the same fabric and the cover illustrations are very similar and have the same theme which is a lakeside cottage with a boat in the foreground. The books are all the same size. To see the covers of all three books, click here. To see the title pages of all three books, click here.

Condition.

General Comments Regarding Volumes I, II and III. All three books are in Very Good condition. The covers have wear which is primarily confined to the edges which have scraped areas. As usual, the inside front and back hinges are cracked. Throughout there are small smudges in the margins of the plates. All plates are protected by tissue guards. The condition of the spine covering is discussed below. The bindings are solid but not tight as the plates are held in place completely by the string ties and these have loosened. These books were issued with approximately 1 in of the spine covered with a silk type cloth at the top and bottom.

Specific Comments:

Volume I, Type 2. One plate (Cherry Blossoms and Jinrikisha) has a tear in starting in the right margin and extending 1 cm into the collotype image. The spine covering (top and bottom) is present but both are broken.

Volume II, Type 2. The "Tea Picking plate is inserted upside down. The top and bottom spine covering are both missing.

Volume III, Type 2. The "Cherry Blossoms at Uyeno, Tokyo" plate has a discolored area at the bottom middle and it extends into the image area. The bottom spine covering is present and the top spine covering is missing.

 
Tamamura, Kozaburo:
Japanese Views and Characters, Vol. III (Tokio and Nikko), ca 1910, horizontal 8vo (6 1/4 x 9 1/4 in - 16 x 24 cm), 24 hand colored collotype plates with captions in English, tissue guards, hard boards covered with fabric, spine covered, string tied, unpaginated. The actual images are approximately 4 x 6 in (10.5 x 15 cm). The hand coloring of the collotype plates in these books is well executed with a wide range of colors employed, to include pastels.

The type 1a and type 1b books have different cover and title page illustrations and different color ties. Aside form that, they are essentially the same books. The type 1a & 1b books are 6 1/4 x 9 1/4 in - 16 x 24 cm. The type 2 book has different covers and title page and is slightly smaller measuring 6 x 9 in - 15.4 x 22.8 cm. The type 2 book has the same plates as the type 1a and 1b books.
