[ff. 27; ff. 27]. text in Japanese. calligraphy by Yusaku. 50 colour woodblock prints of chrysanthemums by Hasegawa (4 double-page, some with added hand-colour). original wrs. (wrs. with some light soiling & slight chipping at inner edges). The colour woodblocks present a beautiful display of fifty different varieties of chrysanthemums, Japan’s national flower. Originating in China, the chrysanthemum was introduced into Japan around the 8th century A.D., and the sixteen-petaled chrysanthemum was adopted for the crest and official seal of the Emperor. The Imperial throne of Japan is referred to as the ‘Chrysanthemum Throne’. Regarded as a symbol of the sun, perfection, and long life, the chrysanthemum is celebrated by the Japanese during the annual Festival of Happiness held in November. We have been unable to determine whether or not further volumes of the work were published..
