[2], 40, [2] pp. on 22 double folded leaves, illustrated with two hand-coloured charts and small hand-coloured squares throughout the text. 8vo, 210 x 150 mm., bound in publisher's wrappers with title label preserved in a new purple cloth folding box. Kyoto: Wakabayashi Kisuke, 1876 [Meiji 9].

This is most probably the first textbook of Western colour theory printed in Japan for Japanese students. It is almost surely based on European models, but since it is a nineteenth century Japanese book, it possesses a rather unique charm. OCLC lists only the Huntington Library in the US.
