    This item consists of six 1905 Prints of Japanese Children by Mortimer Menpes, which were taken from his book Japan: A Record in Color.  Menpes was a student of James MacNeil Whistler.  He created the watercolor originals following a visit to Japan.  Each image measures 5.25" by 4.25" on a page 8.75" by 6" page.  The prints show a beautiful range of colors from the soft pastels of cherry blossoms to the deep purples of night with vermilion lanterns.  The prints are accompanied by glassines with names of the images, such as "By the Light of the Lantern," "Sugar-Water Stall," and "A Sunny Stroll."  All of these 1905 Prints of Japanese Children by Mortimer Menpes are in very good condition.
