Description

In 1867, the last shōgun, Tokugawa Yoshinobu, resigned and the Emperor, Mutsuhito, regained the position of actual head of government. Mutsuhito took the name Meiji ('enlightened government') to designate his reign and this became his imperial title. The royal capital was transferred to Edo, renamed Tokyo ('eastern capital'). This late nineteenth century concertina format publication documents the history of the Tokugawa shōgun. In what is a typical Japanese publication, both sides of the paper have text and images.
