Описание: Re-envisioning Japan is the first truly comprehensive book about Japanese art textiles of the Meiji period. Lavishly illustrated, the book features the bijutsu senshoku, or fine art textiles, that generated a flurry of excitement among international markets between the mid-1870s and the second decade of the twentieth century. The collaboration of seven international scholars explores the craftsmanship and remarkable talent of the Meiji luxury textile producers, artists, and artisans and documents the reactions of consumers in Japan and abroad. Based on centuries-old traditional modes of textile production, the makers of fine art textiles modernized exports and elevated Japan's prestige in the world. This book showcases the spectacular ornamental textiles that were made for the Western market during Japan's Meiji era (1868-1912) and now part of museum and private collections in Japan, North America, and Europe.

Описание: The history of Japan during the Imperial Age, 1868 to 1945, is rich and complex. Japan went from a feudal and secluded Asian nation to a world powerhouse in less than fifty years. Japans relationship with the United States was just as complicated, moving from reluctant trading partner to ally in war to enemy. The documents from this era are a piece of that history. This book is an introduction to the field of collecting Japanese award documents. Over sixty-five documents are featured in color photographs that highlight their beauty and details. The documents range from awards given to farmers for growing crops to the Grand Cordon of the Supreme Order of the Chrysanthemum, signed by the emperor and given to a prime minister. The book also features tools to help the collector translate and identify documents, as well as to store and display them.

Описание: Bing, the world famous German toy company, began producing tin toys in the early 1880s, and between 1895 and 1914 developed into the largest tin toy producer in the world. The catalogues they produced were issued for trade use, and so were of a very high quality, both to stimulate sales and so that they could withstand the rigours of the road in salesmen's bags. They are therefore the best available guide to what the manufacturers intended to issue for the year of the catalogue. This third volume in a series of catalogue reproductions sees the company at its height, and covers not only all the products available in the UK but also variations produced for the French market. In addition, there are four pages of colour illustrating items in the catalogue and a very rare colour catalogue of plush toys.
