[BIRDS & FLOWERS] Tsuchida EISHO, Takeuchi SEIHO, artists. EISHO HYAKUCHO GAFU. 4 vols., complete, 22.7 X 33.1 cm., Kyoto, Unsodo, Taisho 3, 3, 12, 14 [1914, 14, 23, 25]. Profusely illustrated set of images of birds, often quite surreal renderings, ostensibly after design by Tsuchida Eisho, the mid-19th century painter, here re-interpreted by Seiho, the 20th century master, and subtly printed by the Unsodo. Very unusual work, complete in a clasped chitsu case. Very good colors, impressions, condition. A brief notice can be seen at Mitchell, p. 249, referencing Brown, p.202.
