Japanese Nineteenth-Century Copperplate Prints Paperback / softback

Part of the British Museum Press Occasional Paper series


After the 1870s there was an explosion in print production via non-woodblock media in Japan.

This study examines this development looking at a group of etchings issued from the 1830s to the 1880s that are now in the British Museum, the Hunterian Museum, Glasgow, the Scottish National Library, and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.
