LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

New York, NY, U.S.A.: Columbia University Press, 2003. 208pp. looks unused. Today Yoshimasa is remembered primarily as the builder of the Temple of the Silver Pavilion and as the ruler at the time of the Onin War (1467­1477), after which the authority of the shogun all but disappeared. Unable to control the daimyos -provincial military governors -he abandoned politics and devoted himself to the quest for beauty. It was then, after Yoshimasa resigned as shogun and made his home in the mountain retreat now known as the Silver Pavilion, that his aesthetic taste came to define that of the Japanese: the no theater flourished, Japanese gardens were developed, and the tea ceremony had its origins in a small room at the Silver Pavilion. Flower arrangement, ink painting, and shoin-zukuri architecture began or became of major importance under Yoshimasa. Poets introduced their often barely literate warlord-hosts to the literary masterpieces of the past and taught them how to compose poetry. Even the most barbarous warlord came to want the trappings of culture that would enable him to feel like a civilized man.. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
