19. Item #89642

[DESIGN] Furuya KÔRIN. SEIKA. Kyoto, Unsodo, Meiji 36 [1903]. Tall folio folding album, 36.8 X 24.9 cm, Double-page table of contents and final colophon page. The latter indicates this is a "saihan", a reprint done a month after the first printing. There are 12 large double-page designs in color woodcut by Furuya Kôrin, one of the most important of Unsodo's early neo-Rimpa designers. Superbly printed by Unsodo in intense colors, metallic inks, etc. The covers are a bit worn, but overall a nice copy of a stunning and very scarce book in a custom clasped chitsu case. This book should be and will be ranked right along Sekka's as a masterpiece of the genre.

Price: $3,600.00
