Sengai Gibon, artist. Entsu Zenshi Iboku [The Remaining Works of Sengai]. Fukuoka. Meiji 27 [1894] 22.4 x 15 cm, string bound fukuro-toji, Japanese-style in plain gray wrappers with printed paper title label. Black and white and sumi shading throughout on the Zenga illustrations after designs by Sengai Gibon (1750-1837), the wonderful and eccentric Zen painter and calligrapher. According to Mitchell, "The designs in this book were copied from various gajo [picture albums], shiki-shi [calligraphy cards] and byobu [screens] by Sengai." (Mitchell, p.253 and Hillier vol. 1 pp. 230-232) Very good impressions and condition, with the seals on the illustrations. This appears to be the only ehon dedicated to his work. Delightful. $1,400.00.
