Shocking au Japon. De l'evolution de l'art dans l'empire du soleil levant. Dessins de Georges Bigot [cover title]

[Yokohama: 1895]. 8vo, pp. iv, 51, [3]; 15 cartoon text illustrations, pictorial printed covers in red and black, bound with red silk ribbon; ribbons present but mostly snapped with leaves nearly loose, covers soiled and cracked at the extremities, light worming, small closed tear on one leaf; good, or better. The illustrator Georges Bigot became famous in Japan for his satirical depictions of Japanese life. The critical nature of these cartoons caused trouble with Japanese censors, however, forcing him to publish in Yokohama. The Préface is by Villetard de Laguerie. Throughout the book the Exhibition of Kyoto is mentioned, and there are biographical references made for the Japanese artists. Item #51250
