KAKUCHÛ ENPU

Item #88598

[EHON] Saitô Shûho, artist. KAKUCHÛ ENPU. N.P.,N.D. Orihon, 9 3/4 x 6 5/8 inches, in worn green silk covers with the original title label. 12 double page images from Shuho's masterpiece of humor, his kyoka anthology KISHI ENPU, are here reproduced from the original 3 volume set published in 1803, This version was most probably printed about the turn of the century in late Meiji, reproducing the preface, but not the poems. In color woodblock. Nicely done, albeit only a faint shadow of the original work, it captures some of its infectious good fun. Very good condition.

Price: $650.00
