Overview

The Book of Tea: Illustrated, by Okakura Kakuzo was first published in 1919.

A Japanese Harmony of Art Culture & The Simple Life. - Containing many illustrations in colour and in black and white.

This little book is illuminating in its revelation of the old world of Japanese thought and culture, with its reaction on Japanese daily life. It is not a translation, but was written in English.

The author, the late Okakura Kakuzo, was one of theleaders in the movement which a generation ago set itself to stem the western invasion, spreading like a malaria over every field of intellectual activity and threatening to submerge entirely the ancient beautiful Japanese civilisation.

The illustrations are chosen from our own National collections, and in the appendix will be found further details as to the Tea Ceremony and its various accessories.
