Kawamura Kihô, artist. KIHÔ GAFU. Kyoto: Yoshida Shimbei, Bunsei 10 . 1 vol. (complete). 17.3 x 25.7 cm. 5 page prelims, 30 double page color woodblock prints, 1p final, 8pp ads, colophon. The covers are worn (probably not original). The contents are somewhat soiled and stained. Good impressions, contemporary light colors. Kihô was the adopted son of Bumpo^ and his work rivals Bumpô's in freshness and simplicity. This copy appears to resemble Mitchell's example "A" and is doubtless an early impression. Ref: Mitchell pp 360,1; Brown p.105; Ryerson p.388.
