Bidding on WELL-KNOWN RAW SILK PRODUCERS AND THEIR TRADE MARKS--EMPIRE OF JAPAN--COMPILED FOR LOUISIANA PURCHASE EXPOSITION 1904 by the JAPAN SERICULTURAL ASSOCIATION, TOKIO. Sericulture is the art of rearing silworms to produce silk. Book was compiled as an exhibit at the St Louis Exposition and for distribution to anyone wanting more info about the silk industry. This book has a history of Sericulture in the front including cocoon crop statistics, exporting of silk, etc and then on page 21 starts listing the raw silk producers with very colorful renditions of their trademarks or logos, the year established, number of basins, annual production, exported to, prizes awarded. In the back there is information about the Japan Sericulture Association which was established in 1892 with officers listed and the Articles of Association. Book originally has paper wraps but only part of the back is present. The back is also separated from the book. The title page is also separated. The first 25 pages have portions of the lower right corner missing and in general the book has corner wear. The page one also has soiling across the bottom right. There are smudges inside on several pages. So the book is far from perfect but where have you ever seen another like it. The contents are amazing and artwork on the trademarks is fantastic. This book is heavy--shipping outside the US will be very expensive so please contact me if you are interested in International shipping.
