Please take a look and give us your feedback.


Books from George Cash's collection in the Mortimer Rare Book Room are on exhibition. Neilson Library, Level 3, January - February 2005.

This image shows a woman forming a sheet of paper by dipping a mold, or screen, into a vat of paper pulp. It is from Tachibana Minko’s Saiga Shokunin Burui (published 1916-1917), a craftsmen album containing images and descriptions of various crafts.

This is one of a group of Japanese picture books on display, a gift of the estate of George Brower Cash to the Mortimer Rare Book Room.
