Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Definitive catalogue of Japanese heraldic crests featuring almost unlimited variety of plant, animal, bird, and geometric forms — everything from "wild goose" to "folding fan" to "mountain and mist," each with dozens of variations. 4,260 illustrations. "The 4,260 marvelous heraldic emblems...are delicate, interesting, and perfect." — Lady's Circle Needlework.

Synopsis:

Japanese crests dating back to the Middle Ages are reproduced and catalogued according to family.

Synopsis:

The 4,260 individual designs collected here represent the 900-year-old tradition of Japanese family crests. This unabridged republication of the catalog originally compiled around 1913 by the Matsuya Piece-Goods Store in Tokyo contains a translation of the original Foreword plus a new Introduction by Fumie Adachi and a new English Index.
