FOREWORD

These additional papers of the late Bernard Leach were deposited at the Crafts Study Centre, Holburne of Menstrie Museum, Bath, by Mr. David Leach in 1987. Their numbers run on from those of the original deposit made by "B.L." himself in his own lifetime, and confirmed in his will, and catalogued in 1984-85.

It is said that no man is a hero to his valet: it is a very special man who remains a hero to his archivist, over the years. "B.L." remains mine, and many of his friends in Japan and throughout the world, have become (vicariously and largely posthumously) my friends, too. I am eternally grateful to him.

My thanks are due to Mrs. Margaret Hughes of Madryn, Llanbedrgoch, Anglesey, who has typed this catalogue with imperturbable aplomb and unfailing courtesy, good humour and accuracy.




ADDED NUMBERS

Some entries in this schedule will be followed by numbers separated by an oblique stroke within square brackets: these items are "left-overs" from the original deposit and the foot-note numbers refer to their placement in the initial survey made of the Leach papers in their pre-catalogue state (Jan-Feb 1984). This initial survey forms Part I of the original catalogue (1984-85, q.v.)



ABBREVIATIONS

The general abbreviations are as follows:


Bernard Leach BL

Janet Leach JL

David Leach DL

No date n.d.

Abbreviations confined to a single catalogue-entry will hopefully be obvious.

i. General

10804

1910 Sept 4

A MOMENT of personal honesty. BL claims - "I am ceasing to be sincere - Muriel wishes me to pray - but I am sure that it is unnecessary to pray in order to be in tune with Nature...".


10805-10806

c. 1915


OUTLINE constitution of an "East and West Society", in BL's pencilled hand, suggesting qualifications for membership; the work of such a society, running expenses; objects; "Chinese subjects for analysis" (largely painting, under many sub-headings); etc. A later (?) note suggests names for a core of members. Also, a page of rough notes by BL featuring the phoenix, "how East & West meet", self-realization, "The meeting of E. & W.", etc. 2 items.


10807

1915-16


VARIOUS NOTES in BL's hand: (a) indecision about whether he should go to Japan, stay in China, or head for America. Each of these three alternatives has sub­headings denoting comparative advantage and disadvantage; (b) headings for a lecture under the title - "Do American teachers & missionaries understand the meeting of East & West?"; (c) philosophical musings; (d) series of titles of "Lectures in the U.S.A.". The notes at (a) above indicate BL's anxiety on behalf of his wife Muriel, and the need to "settle K.C. personally"

[sic].


I bundle (see also diaries for 1915 and 1916).


10808

1919 Sept 7

"KENSAN DENSHO: Certificate of mastership of the 7th. succession from Ogata Kenzan 1st". This inscription is on the envelope containing the list of "Recipies [sic] of traditional colours and glazes given to Bernard Leach by Ogata Kenzan of the 6th. generation" [this written, presumably, by Ogata Kenzan himself]. On the dorse of the list, BL has written, in pencil: "This is a copy by Ogata Kenzan of the original burnt at my

2
fire at Abiko 1919. In old days it would have entitled me to be the 7th. Kenzan". A further inscription on the envelope is perhaps in the hand of Trudi Scott, writing to BL's dictation: "I resigned this inheritance & in agrement with Shoji Hamada closed its continuity upon the publication of my book 'Kenzan & His Tradition1. Upon reading Kenzan I will & understanding his wishes" [sic].


10809

pre-1920?

SERIES of questions in BL's hand on the effect of moral, physical and spiritual condition for the sex-act in men and women; divided into "Positive" (9 questions) and "Negative" (13 questions numbered irregularly from 1 to 7, and 6 to 11). 1 file; paper very frail


10810

post-1920

"ROUGH TRANSLATION" into English by BL headed "Aoyama Jiro", being an appreciation - critical and hardly over-adulatory - of BL's place in the Japanese Folk-Art Movement.


10811

post-1921

FRAGMENT of an amusing account of BL's introduction to mixed bathing, Japanese-style. This must refer to his earliest years in Japan: for one thing, his Japanese is very halting, and for another, his Western prudishness initially prevents him from participating in the bathing ritual. However, he soon learns! 1 file; pages 5-7, 10-13 only.


10812

n.d.


[c. 1930?]

AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL NOTES (fragment, pp. 5-7, one unnumbered, and pp. 12-13) by BL, from his days at the Slade School of Art [1903] onwards. One or two-word entries initially, becoming sentence and phrase-entries. Presumably before he moved to Peking in 1915, he writes an amazingly uncharacteristic sentence - "The period when I hated Japan, & saw primitiveness, superficiality, artificiality, imitativeness, self-satisfaction & puberty". 1 bundle of small pages, notebook-size.




10813

1931, Nov

NOTES in BL's hand of a "Card fortune by Miss Ellen
