Hiroshige, Andō ... [et al.] [illustrated by].

[Japan : publisher not identified, ca. 1920-40s].

 

A collection of seven colour woodblock-printed chirimen-e (crêpe-paper illustrations) printed in the Taishō to early Shōwa period, possibly earlier. The collection includes two large reproduced illustrations from Hiroshige's ‘Fifty-three Stations of the Tōkaidō’ series, featuring the locations of Goyu and Fukuroi. The other five illustrations, comprising one large and four small prints, are of unknown scenes. The four small prints depict beautiful women from Japan's history, and three of them have the name ‘Uchida’ in the corner, which may be the name of a carver or publisher. A pretty set.

 

Seven leaves. Small pin hole to upper margin of one large print, minor bumping to edges of same print. Very light foxing to Fukuroi print. Margins of larger prints may have been slightly trimmed. A few creases and marks to prints. Occasional ink marks and foxing to versos. Overall near fine. The three large prints measure approximately 18.8 x 27.8 cm, and the four small prints measure approximately 8.8 x 13.7 cm. Text in Japanese.
