Photographs of the Funeral of the Meiji Emperor
Published by K. Ogawa, 1912
The covers consist of thick card stock covered by a thin green paper. The front cover has the Japanese title and K. Ogawa in Japanese in black and silver decorations. The back page has a colorless wreath blindstamped in the center.
The book is divided into three parts as follow:
The Meiji Emperor died July 30th, 1912. By tradition, his funeral was held 45 days after his death. The funeral was held on September 13, 1912. This book was printed on September 26 and published on September 29.Part I. Scene from Palace at Aoyama (Plates 1-16, 16 Plates). Part II. Scene at Aoyama (Plates 17-25, 9 Plates). Part III. Scene at Momoyama (Plates 26-36, 11 Plates).
While I am not positive, I believe the Japanese title for this book is Gotaisogi Shashincho.
