19th century fireworks illustrations from Japan

The public library of Yokohama City has taken a great initiative and digitised six ancient books dating back to the 19th century. These six books illustrate firework designs by Jinta Hirayama, a master at the time of this art. We have selected some designs here, the complete books can be downloaded from the public library website of Yokohama City (you can find out how to browse the Japanese website).
