Riassunto: This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1884 edition.

In a modification of this style, known as the Bunjinga school, colours are introduced, but only sparingly. Block printing was practised in Japan at a very early period, and it is said that a book was printed for distribution amongst the Buddhist temples in this manner in 770 A.d., but the art does not appear to have become general until the early part of the fourteenth century; only modern examples have reached Europe. Printing with types is stated to have been introduced during the sixteenth century, doubtless from China, but it was not largely used until recent times. The most ancient form of book is the roll, or Makimono; the examples which have reached this country vary in length from eleven...
