EHON TATSUTA-YAMA

1552. Item #88941

[EHON] Tsukioka Tange [SETTEI], artist. EHON TATSUTA-YAMA. O^saka & Edo, Ho^reki 3 [1753]. According to the British Museum, the TATSUTAYAMA is Settei's earliest dated work of book illustration. His ladies are graceful and supple though a bit less willowy than Harunobu's, his line delicate and composition effective. Settei's works, though popular in his day, have not survived in great numbers. This copy is bound three volumes in one in the original covers, with a brushed title directly on the front cover. The condition overall is good, the impressions good. Very unusual book.

Price: $2,400.00
