[Kyoto]. 蓍谷宗八. [Metogiya, Sōhachi]. Tenpō 5 ( 1834). Stock ID #175612

Japanese black and white woodblock recipe book, 6 black and white woodblock illustrations show food preparation, service, and the seating order of the guests, title page front free endpaper, 84 folded leaves. The pagination is erratic skipping pages in two places however the digitized copy at the Diet Library also does this so it appears to be complete. Traditional four hole stab binding, covers slightly marked, lacks title label on upper cover. 12.5 x 18cm.

This delightful black and white woodblock book offers menus arranged for each month of the year. The illustrations were the work of artist Hishikawa Kiyoharu 菱川清春(drawing) while Katō Kansuke 加藤勘助 and Sofue Kippei 祖父江吉平 carved the block. Each full menu consists of two soups and seven fish and vegetarian dishes. Many of the menus have the numbers "五[5]" or “三[3]” above the dishes and in this case the reader can choose a simplified menu of five or three dishes with one soup.

The author, Ikeda Tōri 池田東籬 (1788-1857) was a popular author of both practical guides and works of fiction in the late Edo period. The illustrator, Hishikawa Kiyoharu 菱川清春 (1808-1877), whose six images of serving dishes, cooking and seating arrangement for guests appear in this book, was a ukiyo-e artist active in Kyoto.
Also included are two indexes of main and side dishes. The ten principles of cooking and serving food are listed at the end of the work.
