"鏡山舊錦画"

[Yō, Yōtai (original text by)].

[Ōsaka: Ono'oka Jinzaburō, ca. 1900-20s?].

 

In The Women's Chushingura, a play first performed in 1782, the heroine Ohatsu, the loyal maidservant of the middle-rank lady-inwaiting Onoe, takes revenge on Iwafuji, the senior lady-in-waiting, for causing the suicide of Onoe. Rebecca Corbett notes that the play "centers on the tensions between a female samurai attendant at a daimyō mansion and another attendant who is a commoner’s daughter and does not have the same training in martial arts as the women raised in samurai households" (Cultivating Femininity, p. 78).

 

The upper wrapper and internal black lines of the book have been woodblock-printed, while the colours have been stencil-printed (kappazuri). On double leaves, fukurotoji-style. Original woodblock-printed wrappers, with minor wear. Light occasional marks to leaves. 1 v., complete. 6 leaves. 17 x 11.2 cm.
