This event has ended.

This is the first time for these French picture books treasured for many years in the collection of rare Western books belonging to Shigeru Kashima, a scholar of French literature, to be shown in public. They date mainly from the late nineteenth century, when fine children’s books emerged, to the early twentieth century, when subtle, modern, and lively pictures played the leading role. The entirety of this collection rich in charming, beautiful French picture books is revealed here.
