An Advertisement Designed to Resemble a Leaf from a Book

US$290.00 ENQUIRE BUY


Reihō Mankintan ["Sacred Tiger Balm"]

Ise, [Japan]: Noma Inaba-en, [ca. mid-Edo period (17th to 19th century)].

 

An advertisement or set of instructions for the Noma family brand's Reiho Mankintan, a famous cure-all popular as a souvenir from Ise in the Edo period. The print is designed to look like a leaf from a book, as is apparent from the hanshin title column and black gyobi (fishtail-shaped marks) to the right of the text. Considering the multiple creases and central brown stain, it is possible that the paper was also used to wrap the medicine being sold.

 

One leaf, complete, small stains, creases, and holes. Text rubbed in places. 16.9 x 24.8 cm.
