Japanese Rare and Thread-bound Books


Our Japanese rare and thread-bound books are mostly publications or manuscripts from the Edo period (1603-1868), with a few manuscripts dated back to the mid-15th century. Our collections focus on literary works of Japan, showing the development of Japanese literatures and history since the Muromachi period (1336-1573).
