25 Hand Colored Collotype Photographs

 
Cover (Cloth Covered)

Tamamura Kazaburo (Presumed):
No title, no colophon, not dated (c1900-c1906), oblong 7 3/4 x 17 in (20 x 43 cm), cloth covered outer boards with single string tie, no inner cover or title page, free front page, pages unnumbered but 25 hand colored collotype plates. The images are tipped to plate and not printed on the plate. Each photograph has an English caption hand printed in pencil at the bottom left corner below the image. The collotypes plates are protected with tissue guards. There is no colophon.

The fourth plate in this folio "Arashiyama at Kyoto" is identical to a plate found in Characteristic Japan. Views and Characters in the Land of the Rising Sun where it is captioned "A Hot Spring Day at Asashiyama, Kyoto."

Another plate (11th plate - "Fishing Boats") in this folio is also identical to a plate found in Characteristic Japan. Views and Characters in the Land of the Rising Sun. In that book the caption reads, "The Shikoku fleet of fishing junks. The weather appears fine: but a storm is promised hence the idle appearance of the boats.)"

Another plate

Across the above 2 Artistic Japan books and this folio the same general scene appears. It is basically the same scene but with slightly different perspectives and taken at different times.

I believe that this folio could be a forerunner or prototype of the soon to be published Characteristic Japan. Views and Characters in the Land of the Rising Sun book.

Book/Folio Size: 7 3/4 x 17 in (20 x 43 cm)
