[EHON] Ôishi Matora, artist. SÔGA HYAKUBUTSU. 2 vols. 22.4 x 16 cm, String-bound, Japanese-style, fukuro-toji. In original blue and white patterned covers, printed paper title label. Osaka: Bunkaido, Tsurugaya Kuhei, Tempo 3 [1832]. [Brown, p.110; Ryerson, 391] The Mitchell copy at p.496 was bound in two volumes, as is this copy. In any event, our copy is complete with the inner front cover preface sheet, all the illustrations and the colophon. Hillier appreciates this little-known work (THE ART.... p.794) and so do we.... from beginning to end a wonderful collection of free and vibrant genre scenes. With the original title labels and covers. The lower half of the outside printed cover overlay is torn away, else very good condition, and printing. Ôishi Matora is an underappreciated artist, a master of many styles.
