Format: Taschenbuch
In this excellent primer to the aesthetic of Japanese building design, Edward Morse casts a sympathetic and discerning eye on the constituent principles, parts, and details of traditional Japanese architecture and design. As we are led room by room through Japanese buildings of his time, we acquire an appreciation for the highly imaginitive individual expressions made by artisans of many crafts working within the standardization that gave the style longevity through many generations.
His study ranges from the historical origins of Japanese architecture to covering room floorplans, as has become a staple in introducing Japanese tatami mat rooms since he first wrote this book in the 1886, to lavishing minute attention to the details of various crafts that made the Japanese interior design accessories touchstones of excellence throughout the world. He also provides intimate vignettes of individual design principles, items, materials, and construction utilized throughout Japanese houses, rooms, and tea rooms.
His ability to translate the often fleeting impression of a space into precise identifiable elements makes him a valuable guide to this deceptively simple-looking style of interior design whose rigorous structure and aesthetic guidelines make it one of the great design styles of history. The extensive etchings included in the book provide concise, delightful, and sometimes humorous examples of the principles applied.

This is a great book which describes in fine detail theJapanese home in the late 1800s. This book captures a period of timewhen the Japanese house still had its unique cultural style and hadn't been excessively influenced by american or european style architecture. The book is clearly written and there are many detailed drawings which illustrate the text's descriptions. It is an interesting book both for its architectural detail as well as for its historical perspective.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "Japanese Homes and their Surroundings"- a review by Rich Saylor, Architect 30. März 2015
Von Rich - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
A nice companion book to others, such as "The Japanese Bath", by Bruce Smith. This Dover edition is a reprint of a book written in the 1880's, and so giving a truly authentic representation of the styles of old Japan, uninfluenced by Western concepts. To compare the descriptions and sketches of this book with modern books on the subject is very educational,at the least. There is also a very good glossary of Japanese terms/words in the back; such translations of Japanese words are not often found in most books on Japanese architecture, and are very helpful for those wishing to have a good understanding of the ideas represented in traditional Japanese residential architecture. Very good reading, and wonderful sketches!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Mixed feelings...content vs quality. 25. Dezember 2014
Von Sibylla - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Five stars for the content, 3 stars for the poor quality of the scanned pages in my copy, sonsplit the difference for a 4 star score. I'm a fast reader, and I actually have to go in with a fine tip pen and write in the words so I can read faster than a snail's pace. Its really frustrating, and it has been mentioned, so I was expecting it to some extent. I'm hoping a mid-range review will encourage someone to make better scans/copies in the future. I'd be willing to pay a little more for a more readable book.

All that being said, there's a lot of info in here...maybe a bit dry for some, but the architect/interior designer in me loved the first hand accounting and the sketches.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A tale of two worlds 16. August 2016
Von Kindle Customer Francis Booth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
An evocation of the simplicity of the domestic buildings, and the immediacy of nature in the Pacific islands dwellings, with scornful commentary on the design of the house of the western world. All very relevant as we, including east Asia, must learn to live so much more simply in a world of scarcity. and written by a western man of his time who obviously loves the Japan before the Meiji revolution transformed Japan.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A Japanese Cultural Treasure, written by an American 4. September 2013
Von Nancy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you are interested in the subject, this is an invaluable resource. A bonus is that the introduction reveals that the beautiful and sustaining-of-culture-and-value Japanese Cultural Treasures designations actually arose because 3 American (USA) professors saw too much of real value disappearing from Japan. They worked together with Japanese government officials with the result that Japan created their Cultural Treasures and went on to designate people, food, textiles, ceramics, buildings and land (and more) as Cultural Treasures, thus preserving one of the finest cultures in the world, while giving people who create and care about culture a reason to keep on doing so.

If only the 3 professors had also worked with Americans with the same success.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Mildly interesting for researchers 5. Juni 2015
Von Gromer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is mildly interesting for researchers, architects and historians but the lay reader would find it very boring. It is a record of Japanese architectural details, paired with rather bland, detailed commentary. The most interesting feature of this book is that it was produced before people took photos, so the author ended up drawing in painstaking detail all the houses and architectural features that he comments on. People were just more observant back then, when they could not rely on cameras.
