Kokka, A Gallery of Chinese and Japanese Painting

This site is actually the introductory site to a book published in 1908 by the Kokka Publishing Company, who published a series of at least four art reproduction books of this type during the period of 1906-1908. This was the last and most expensive book and it was priced at triple the price of the other books.
