1827. Item #36171
[EHON] Kawamura Kiho^, artist. KIHO^ GAFU. Kyoto: Yoshida Shimbei, Bunsei 10, . 1 vol. (complete). 17.5 x 25.9 cm. 5 page prelims, 30 double page color woodblock prints, 1p final, 8pp ads, colophon. The covers are greyish-blue with a swirling wave pattern in mica. The title label is worn. The covers are a bit soiled and stained and the contents are very lightly thumbed with a bit of worming. Good to very good impressions and colors. Kiho^ was the adopted son of Bumpo^ and his work rivals Bumpo^'s in freshness and simplicity. This copy appears to resemble Mitchell's example "A" and is doubtless an early impression. (Ref: Mitchell pp.360,1; Brown p.105; Ryerson p.388).
