1912. Item #87470

[EHON] O^ta Saburo^, artist. ASA GIRI Tokyo, Meiji 45 [1912]. 2 volumes, string-bound Japanese style, 19.1 x 13 cm. Each volume contains 35 color prints with a facing page of text. The prints appear to be a hybrid of lithography and color woodcut. [See Hillier's discussion of the book in his ART OF THE JAPANESE PRINTED BOOK]. These small volumes constitute one of the more interesting examples of the Japanese picture book genre produced in this century. Our copy is in very good condition overall, without the usual foxing marks internally. It is enclosed in the original publishers box with a printed title label and is one of the nicer copies we have seen. Unusual in such nice condition. Complete:.
