HAIKU] HAIMI TAIKAN. NAKAMURA FusetsU, ISHII Hakutei, et al. HAIMI TAIKAN. 34.6x 23.7 cm. The foremost proponents of the "haiku-style" (most associated with HOTOTOGISU magazine) in early 20th Century Japan have herein collaborated to create a multiple album of brushed original drawings, calligraphy and poems. Included are Fusetsu, Hakutei, Kyoshi, Hekigotô, Izan, etc. Without colophon or preface, but this well-known limited private production is almost certainly from the mid to late teens of the twentieth century and was probably created in Tôkyô. There are 12 sheets laid into this orihon folding album in brocade covers, all in the (original?) chitsu case. A few wormholes but otherwise quite clean and in very good condition. $1,750.00.
