内容紹介

日本の宮大工・数寄屋大工・建具屋・大工らの木材利用法を解説(英文)。資料として1876年のフィラデルフィア万国博覧会で披露された「有用木材捷覧」から特に重要な樹種について抜粋して掲載。木工芸についての英語-日本語対照用語集付。

Drawing attention to the wood species used by Japan's carpenters, Japanese Wood and Carpentry, Rustic and Refined, reveals the ingenious ways in which Japanese carpenters exploit the extraordinary diversity of their country's forest resources. Its first part introduces four types of Japanese carpenters – temple and shrine carpenters, carpenters of refined teahouses and residences, joiners of doors, windows and screens, and general carpenters – and details the wood species used by each. In its second part, the book grants the modern-day reader access to a rare document: the Yûyô Mokuzai Shôran handbook, a guide to Japanese wood species prepared by the Meiji government for the 1876 Philadelphia Exhibition. Full-size facsimiles of thirty-two of the handbook's samples furnish an in-depth look at some of the important wood species used in Japanese architectural construction. Together, the two parts make for an indispensable resource for anyone interested in learning more about Japan’s fascinating ‘culture of wood’.
