Sword and Blossom Poems Vol. 3
The Sword and Blossom Poems series consisted of 3 volumes of woodblock illustrated poetry,
translated into English from the original Japanese.
Volume 1 was published in November, 1907, followed by volume 2 in August, 1908.
The third volume, was originally published in October, 1910.
The edition pictured here is part of a cased set of the 3 volumes which was produced sometime
after Hasegawa located at 17 Kami Negishi-cho, in June, 1911.
Most of the books published by Hasegawa were tied together with silk cord.
Typically, a double page spread was printed on 2 sheets of paper.
In this book, each double page spread was printed on a single sheet.
The book was bound such that it opened all the way flat.
Therefore, I was able to produce the following scans with no strain to the binding.
Here are images of all of the pages in this volume.
