[EHON] Kawamura BUMPÔ & Watanabe NANGAKU. KAIDÔ KYÔKA AWASE . Naniwa [Osaka]: Kawachiya Kihei & Teito [Kyoto]: Yoshidaya Shimbei, Bunka 8 . 25.9 x 17.8 cm. yellow-brown covers, string-bound, fukuro-toji, printed paper title label. See Mitchell 324-5 for more on this bibliographically complex book. Resembles his "B" example in one volume. Hard to establish a chronology of the various issues as they all have the same colophon. There is a 4 page Yoshidaya Shimbei catalogue bound into the back of the book. Very good impressions, lovely delicate colors. A wonderful collaboration from these two great artists, alternating their designs in succession. Quite an unusual book. In a custom tied case.
