19. Item #77572

[Ehon] Yanagawa Shigenobu, artist. YANAGAWA GAJO. Owari [Nagoya]: Minôya Iroku, Minôya Bunjirô, n.d., 22.8 x 15.7 cm. Red covers, paper label, 47 (+1) pages of color woodcut illustrations. [Ref: Forrer, pp.246,7] There is a title page on the front inner cover anda publishers' ad for six titles inside the rear cover. Appears to be a reprint of this work which was originally issued by Eirakuya Tôshirô [Brown says 1821]. Our copy has the Eirakuya pattern in blind on the covers. The impressions and colors are fair to good. Complete in and of itself, though a sequel was advertised (unlocated). The back cover is badly waterdamaged, but the damage does not effect the contents. Not as common a book as might be expected.

Price: $175.00
