Interesting edition of this book of delicately printed designs after Chikuto [1776-1853]. Approved in Tempô 12 for publication, it originally appeared, as here, in 1846, printed by Hishiya Magobei. [Mitchell 559-60]. It has the same collation as that version, with seals on the preface and the pictures. The impressions are quite lovely.
