Japanese Crepe paper books

In 1895, a crepe paper book was published by S.L.G with Kelly & Walsh as the publisher.

The printer “Hirose Sei” was the wife of the first generation Hirose Tatsugorou, the founder of the Edo Chiyogami publisher “Ise Tatsu”. After Tatsugorou’s death, his son Yoshitarou took over, but at the time this material was produced, since Yoshitarou had just begun to learn the business, it is speculated that his mother Sei’s name was used as the printer.

From the above, it can be pointed out that this material was produced by “Ise Tatsu” and is a crepe paper book made by a different publisher than Hasegawa Takejiro. “Ise Tatsu” still employs artisans who apply crepe processing to woodblock prints and has continued to produce Chiyogami for over 150 years since its establishment in the first year of Genji (1864).

The author S.L.G is speculated to be Sidney Lewis Gulick, an American missionary affiliated with the American Board. He handled this material in 1895, while he was in the Kawaguchi settlement in Osaka. The material shows affection for Japan and the Japanese language throughout. For example, the cover illustration, depicting a person landing in Japan from a harbor, seems to represent Gulick himself. A distinctive feature of this material is that it starts with four pages of music scores. Since it is stated “WORDS AND MUSIC BY S.L.G” at the top of the music score, the song was written and composed by Gulick.
