San Francisco: Asian Art Museum, 1987. Pamphlet. p., captioned color exhibit photography on coated alkaline paperstock throughout, softbound in 9x6 inch stapled self-wraps. Covers are mildly crimped and handled, and a small light corner-tip crease affects every leaf. A bookdealer's half-erased pencilled price and code slightly mar the second leaf.. Quite sound and clean, a good copy.
"..focuses on Japanese lacquer from the long era of peace under the Tokugawa shogunate, from 1615 to 1868. It was during this period that the technical sophistication of the medium reached its highest standard"
