Description
Framed paper with burned edges, a column of fancy curley-cues, a red wax seal with ribbon, and writing in calligraphy. The certificate reads: “Proclamation Be it proclaimed that on May 19, 1976. Mr Wally Dowhniuk Chairman of the Banff Advisory Council and Mr. Masamaru Kuwato, Mayor of Obama have signed this final Agreement twinning the city of Banff situated in Banff National Park, Alberta Canada with the city of Obama situated on the edge of Unzen National Park in the Nagasaki Prefecture in Japan. This Agreement is to promote common interest and understanding between the citizens of the two countries and was signed at an official ceremony in Banff in the Spring of the year of our Lord 1976.” Each capital letter in the body of text is red. The proclamation has two signatures at the bottom - one in cursive with “Wally Dowhaniuk, Chairman Banff Advisory Council” underneath, and one in Japanese characters with “Masamaru Kuwato, Mayor Town of Obama-Cho” underneath. The gold coloured frame has raised floral decoration. The certificate is mounted under glass. The back of the frame is covered with wood and has a gold and black sticker with Japanese writing on it. There are two picture hangers attached at the sides with a white rope strung between them. The proclamation is accompanied by a card, with a print of a water colour painting of Mount Rundle on the front, with “July 7/96 Ted: If you can find a place in the new Town Hall for this Old Proclamation, please do so. Thank You. Wally Dowhaniuk” handwrtitten in black ink. The back of the card has a brief explaination about the artist, a cogged wheel with “ROTARY INTERNATIONAL,” and “All proceeds from the sale of these cards will go toward Rotary Club projects.”

Abstract
Crows, Cranes and Camellias: the Natural World of Ohara Koson 1877-1945 is the first publication in a Western language to discuss his corpus of work, and it has drawn upon the private Jan Perree collection (now housed in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam) for inspiration. First published In 2001, this new edition features an additional chapter on Koson's oeuvre and designs which have been discovered since the original publication of Crows, Cranes and Camellias. Including an overview of Koson's life and artistic career, augmented by a checklist of the majority of his work, select seals and signatures, this book is a valuable source for Koson collectors. --Book Jacket.
