Edo is the ancient name for the city of Tokyo and covers the historic period from 1603 until 1868 when Japan was ruled by the shoguns. This military class transformed Edo from a fishing village into one of the largest, most populous and most cultivated cities in the world. This magnificently illustrated publication features a wide variety of Edo art, notably paintings, prints, ceramics, lacquerwares, metalwares, textiles, religious art and samurai paraphernalia. These works, and especially the prints known as ukiyo-e, reveal the life and customs of the Edo period, offering unrivaled material for the study of daily life across the breadth of Edo period Japan.
