Tōkaidō GoJūSan-sugi Manga Emaki 東海道五十三次漫画絵巻

1921. Item #90892

Okamoto Ippei 岡本一平, Maekawa Sempan 前川千帆, Hiratsuka Un’ichi 平塚 運一 et al. Tōkaidō GoJūSan-sugi Manga Emaki 東海道五十三次漫画絵巻. [Taisho 10 大正 10 1921]. Jo Ge 上下. Two scrolls, each over 30 feet long and 10” high. The scroll set was done in some 250 - 300 copies by 18 members of the Tokyo Manga Association (Tokyo Manga Kai 東京漫画会), each set hand painted. It would appear that the trip upon which the set was based took place in 1920-21 and the paintings must have been finished soon after. The inventory of artists involved include some famous names: Mizushima Niō 水島爾保布, Kondō Kōichiro 近藤浩一路, Okamoto Ippei 岡本一平, Maekawa Sempan 前川千帆 and Hiratsuka Un’ichi 平塚 運一, among others. The Great Earthquake must have destroyed quite a few and the war many more. Now the set appears infrequently in the market.

Housed in a wooden box inscribed on the inside of the cover, with hanko (by artist Kōichiro Kondō 近藤浩一路 ?). Our copy has scant foxing and is quite well painted. A very nice example of this genre of hand-painted multiples.

Price: $3,000.00
