Tenji Ōsaka Mainichi = The Braille Mainichi
Nakamura, Kyōtarō [edited and printed by].
Ōsaka: Ōsaka Mainichi Shinbunsha, Taishō 12-16 [1923-1927].
Two issues - the November 8th issue from Taishō 12 (issue 79) and a special New Year's issue from Taishō 16 (issue 242) - of The Braille Mainichi, one of Japan's earliest braille newspapers. Both issues contain leaves printed in braille on both sides and a guide to the braille readings of Japanese characters. The New Year issue features two loosely inserted maps of countries of the world in braille. The two issues come with a large leaf printed on one side in Japanese that provides information on the newspaper's printing process, pictures of the printing machines, and information on braille itself. The editor of the newspaper, Nakamura Kyōtarō (1880-1964), is recorded as the first blind or severely visually impaired person to have become a regular teacher at a Japanese school.
Two issues. Light browning, occasional creases, and marks to leaves. Minor chipping to extremities. Crease to centre of issue 242. Issue 79 consists of  p. including wrappers. Issue 242 consists of  p. including wrappers + two loose braille maps. It is unclear whether issue 242 is complete. Each issue measures approximately 31.5 x 23.5 cm.
