Finely produced collection of woodblock images printed by Tamura for the Kokka Company. An excellent copy in decorative cloth covered boards with string ties and a Japanese title, bright and attractively produced with a little rubbing to extremities and a stain along the top 3cm of the lower cover. This stain also appears across the top 3cm of the paper stock within the book, not affecting images. The book is contained in the publisher's original box, also with label to upper cover; two ephemera relating to the Kokka Company laid in. The box has done an excellent job of protecting the binding which is fresh and bright - the box itself is worn and tired. There are ten plates which are of varying sizes from a double page spread (45x20cm plate mark) of Iris Flowers - Folding Screen painted on paper by Korin Ogata to a Lid of a Lacquered Te-Bako, Korin, (18x24cm). One image is of a painting on a fan, another An Azalea Tree by a Brook from a painting on silk by Korin. Each of the ten plates has a labelled tissue guard and is in excellent condition.
