Japanese Works

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Saitō Gesshin 斎藤月岑 (1804-1878) was a scholar and author of historical artefacts. He collected various illustrated materials and documents (printed sheets and manuscripts) which related to the urban life and customs in Edo 江戸 (Tokyo). His collection began in the Bunka 文化 period (1804-1818). The materials were pasted together to form a long scroll. The subjects of these ephemera include performing entertainments, such as Kabuki, No, Kyōgen, festivals, fires, parades of Ryūkūjin (Ryukyuans), etc. The scroll in our possession was completed in 1843 (天保14) with a preface in Saitō Gesshin's own handwriting.</p> <p style='text-align: justify;'>The first item in the scroll is a sheet which contains both text and paintings added by hand by Shiba Kōkan 司馬江漢 (1747-1818). Shiba Kōkan was a well-known painter and printmaker of the Edo period whose works include Western style paintings. The text is derived from Tsurezuregusa 徒然草, a famous collection of essays of the 14th century, which was written by Yoshida Kenkō 吉田兼好.</p> <p style='text-align: justify;'>The following items are included (Hayashi Nozomu & Peter Kornicki: Early Japanese Books in Cambridge University Library: a Catalogue of the Aston, Satow and Von Siebold Collections):</p> <div> 1. 司馬江漢自筆書画幅(『徒然草』74段)文化8写<br /> 2. 〔隅田川畔春景図〕(仮題) 紹真画 〔江戸後期〕刊 多色刷<br /> 3. 〔文化元年十一代中村〕勘三郎興行寿狂言「猿若」「門松」口上〕 鳥井清長画 文化1刊(江戸、村山) 多色刷<br /> 4.
