About This Item

Tokyo: [The author?], 1897. Oblong 4to, 23 x 31 cm., pictorial title, 18 leaves, 16 of which are illustration, 2 text. A very good copy stitched in the Japanese style in original pictorial wrappers. Stain to edge of front wrapper. Cartoons in Bigot's inimitable style on the subject of Japanese attacks on foreigners, in particular "Heaving a foreigner over a cliff for fun, Kobe" and "L'Affaire de Nikko" in August 1897. Georges Ferdinand Bigot (1860-1927) studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris from the age of 12. Enthralled by the Japanese pavilion at the Exposition Universelle of 1878, he went to Japan where he was employed illustrating newspapers and teaching French and watercolour painting. He learnt Japanese, travelled extensively, married a Japanese woman, and returned to France in 1899. Héléne Conevin, De la gravure à la caricature: Le Japon de Meiji vu par G. Bigot, 1990; Worldcat shows one copy only at the National Diet Library
