Circa 1840-50, approx 50 handwritten pages with ink drawings. Ikebana (???, "living flowers") is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. The tradition dates back to the 7th century when floral offerings were made at altars. Later, they were placed in the tokonoma (alcove) of a home. Ikebana reached its first zenith in the 16th century under the influence of Buddhist tea-masters and has grown over the centuries, with over 1,000 different schools in Japan and abroad. Ikebana is counted as one of the three classical Japanese arts of refinement, along with kodo for incense appreciation, and chado for tea and the tea ceremony. The book exhibits channels from a long past infestation, however it reads well.
