1824. Item #88526
[EHON] Hatta KOSHU, artist. KOSHU GAFU. Kyoto: Yoshidaya Shimbei, Bunsei 7 . String bound Japanese-style, fukuro toji with original blue-grey covers embossed with interlocking octagons, title slip printed in black on buff. 33 sheets, 5 pp. preface with 30 sheets of color illustrations in Shijo style. This is the second issue of the work, printed by the same publisher as the original edition of 1812. The impressions and colors are good to very good, a careful job throughout. The covers are a bit worn and the title slip somewhat faded and stained but the contents are in very good condition, indeed. A lovely copy of an important Shijo school book by a direct disciple of Maruyama Okyo, himself. [See Mitchell, p. 378; Hillier, Vol.2 pp. 711-2; Hillier/Ravicz, p. 42; Holloway, p. 100.].
