New York: George Braziller Inc, 1988. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Very Good copy with a dampstain to the binding that does not affect the text block or illustrations in a Near Fine dust jacket with a hint of sunning to the spine. Japan: The Shaping of Daimyo Culture explores the culture created by warriors of medieval and modern Japan. Daimyo were feudal lords who, as leaders of powerful warrior bands, controlled the provinces of Japan from the beginning of the Kamakura period in 1185 to the end of the Edo period in 1868. This warrior class, as newly risen holders of political authority, developed cultural traditions inherited from the court. Later, the evolution of early modern culture in the Edo period resulted from the participation of both the daimyo and the merchant class. The works of art gathered here reflect the active role of the warriors in the development of an important part of Japanese cultural history. Item #27434
