Title: 新間雑誌 - 第五十八号 (Shinma Magazine, No. 58)
Date: August, 1872
Description: This work features multiple issues of Shinma Magazine published in 1872, bound together to form a book. It was printed during the Meiji era, a period marked by Japan's rapid modernization as it joined the world stage after centuries of near total isolation.
Many of the newspapers and magazines of this era were highly propagandized in favor of the Meiji government. Japanese nationalism was on the rise during this time as the government attempted to form a united and militarized image, eventually coming to a boiling point during World War II.
Care Instructions: Japanese books are read right to left (instead of left to right) and are bound on the right side, contrary to those in Western languages. The pages may be double layered, and care must be taken to ensure that they do not separate when flipping through. The book must be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and out of reach of bugs.
