[EHON] Tani BUNCHÔ, artist. NIHON MEISAN ZUE 3 vols. Kyoto, Osaka, Edo, . String-bound, fukuro-toji, original printed paper title labels, b+w woodblock depictions of the "Famous Mountains of Japan." A work justly famed for its accurate representation of the mountains in question. According to Mitchell, this is the third printing, done in Bunka 9 , some eight years after the original edition, but still retaining the freshness and vigor of line for which the book is known. Volumes 1 and 2 are clean. The final volume has spotted covers and a faint tide line at the bottom edge, below the illustrations throughout most of the volume, that rises near the end, and some slight marginal worming. This copy is printed with great skill and subtlety, in a very good impression. Very good overall.
