Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London, England, 1995 Book. Very Good. Hardcover.

Signs of wear on the dust jacket that is now protected with a clearcover.; Modern Japan offers us a view of a highly developed society with its own internal logic. Eiko Ikegami makes this logic accessible to us through a sweeping investigation into the roots of Japanese organizational structures. She accomplishes this by focusing on the diverse roles that the samurai have played in Japanese history. From their rise in ancient Japan, through their dominance as warrior lords in the medieval period, and their subsequent transformation to quasi-bureaucrats at the beginning of the Tokugawa era, the samurai held center stage in Japan until their abolishment after the opening up of Japan in the mid-nineteenth century. This book demonstrates how… Read More

Description:
Omega Books Limited, United Kingdom, 1984 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. English text; Hardcover (with dust jacket); 23.9 x 28.7 cm; 1.081 Kg; 176 pages with 70 illustrations in colour and 122 in black and white; Minor signs of wear in the dust jacket. The interior is in very good condition; Japanese prints are the most popular art form to have emerged from the Far East. After the prints first appeared in the West in the late nineteenth century, the startling originality of the designs and the often brilliant colors influenced several generations of artists including Degas, Whistler and Van Gogh. Much of the fascination lies in their subject matter, which was drawn from all that was most exciting about Japanese life, whether it was wildly dramatic Kabuki plays, the beautiful courtesans of the Yoshiwara, the heroes from the legendary past, and the varied and impressive landscape of the country itself. Richard Illing, in his lively and informative text, surveys the whole range of Japanese prints from their… Read More

Interior in very good condition. The dust jacket is now protected with a clearcover.; The styles called chinoiserie were the European dream of the Orient, as escapist style of decoration that flourished in the courts and houses of seventeenth and eighteenth century Europe. The lighthearted fantasy of chinoiserie was one of jade pavilions, pleasure domes, ivory pagodas, delicate bridges over rushing rivers, and it is reflected in places like the Royal Pavilion in Brighton, England, the splendors of Versailles, and the exotic lacquered cabinets and the ceramics of England, Holland, and France. This Western idea of what oriental things were like - or ought to be like - is still evident today in fabrics and tableware… Read More
