NIHON MEIGA KAGAMI Tokugawa Jidai
1898. Item #37861
[EHON] Matsumura GOSHUN, artist. NIHON MEIGA KAGAMI Tokugawa Jidai. Tokyo: To^yo^do^ Branch Shop, Kanda, Meiji 31 . Stamped in red on the title slip "Goshun-O^eyama". Large, 25 cm x 18 cm orihon folding album. In embossed stiff creme paper covers. There are 12 double page color printed images. A pleasing Meiji rendition of Goshun's inimitable style. Particularly interesting as the images are freighted with bits and pieces of the whole 19th century development in the Shijo^ school: Suiseki, Chinnen, etc. A by no means common work, identical to the copy at Mitchell 434, (see also Ryerson 378). The covers are soiled and a bit stained, internally vg. The impressions and colors are very good. Complete.
