Kitte Eukakushi" (The Postage Stamp History of the Japanese Empire), with all postage

and telegraph issues and postal stationery from 1871/1896 and two 1874 Express labels;

complete with all 1112 pages and beautifully bound in silk with the original purple ties for

binding at side, printed in both Japanese and English. The book contains original examples

of all stamps except for seven which were no longer available even in the Post Office

archives. Between pages 88 and 89 of the book there is a fold-out page detailing the exact

numbers printed of the original issues. The book is dedicated on the first page (at the back)

to "Monsieur Homberger, Budapest, 22 July 1896". The book is contained in a superbly

crafted box for it's continued preservation. A wonderful and outstanding example of what

is, perhaps, the most sought after book in all philatelic literature of Asia and of the utmost

rarity to both bilbliophiles and philatelists.

The Unofficial 1896 Presentation Album of Japanese Stamps: "Dai Nippon Teikoku Ubin

Kitte Eukakushi" (The Postage Stamp History of the Japanese Empire), produced by the

facsimile dealer K. Wada in Tokyo in late 1896 due to the demand for the copies of the

original (which were only distibuted to high Officials around the world by the Japanese

Dept. of Communications). Virtually a copy of the original work offered in the previous

lot, the stamp specimens are outstanding facsimilies throughout, produced in a similar

silk wrapper with differing notation on the front and different purple ties. This example

also contains the fold-out table. The issue of this book was suppressed by the Japanese

Government and, though full of forgeries, this book is of the same magnitude of rarity as

the original though obviously the contents are not of the same value. An exquisite book encased,

as the previous lot, in a hand-crafted box for protection. (Photo = 1 www)
