Residential Rhymes, Sympathetically dedicated to foreigners in Japan
by Edwards, Osman
Tokyo: T. Hasegawa. String ties. . Very Good. N.d., circa 1900. Oblong, 19 by 26.5 cm. Unpaginated, 11 leaves, including front and rear cover, or 22 pages. Scenes of Europeans in various roles, such as The Merchant at Yokohama, The Journalist at Kobe, The Painter at Miyajima, The Captain at Shimabara, etc., rendered in verse that could be sung to the tune of a suggested air. The music was assuredly all known tunes back when. An idiosyncratic Hasegawa publication, and a fascinating blend of the west and the east. This is also an uncommon Hasegawa title, seldom in commerce. Soiling to the cover, and edgewear and minor chipping to the first and last leaves.
