[EHON] KAWAMURA Bumpô. KANGA SHINAN NIHEN. Kyoto: Hishiya Magobei, et al., Bunka 8 . String-bound Japanese style in the original covers with paper title labels. 26.1 x 17.2 cm. This "second series" of the KANGA SHINAN [Manual of Chinese-style Painting] was the only one illustrated by Bumpô and was published over thirty years after the first series; so it obviously stands on its own as an independent work. The simple designs are printed in sumi and light colors in very good impression. The condition of the three volumes is very good with only minor internal soiling and some exterior wear and soiling. A very nice example of an early printing. (Mitchell p. 335, Ryerson 385, Brown 104). Complete, as issued.
