Kōfu Sake wo Tachite Issei no Kuwauju to Naru ["To Become a World-Famous Scholar After Renouncing Alcohol"]

[Kobayashi], Toshikazu [illustrated by]; [Tominaga], Toshichika [corrected by].

Tōkyō: Tsuji Keiji: Fukyū sha, Meiji 21 [1888]. "Later printing".

 

A woodblock-printed supplement to the Nishiki-e Shūshindan ("Brocade Pictures for Moral Education") series of texts for primary school students. The books, produced by Fukyū sha, Yoshitoshi, and his students, collected moral stories from the West, China, and Japan.  This particular illustration accompanies the fourteenth story in volume five, found on leaf twenty-five, which relates the tale of one [Hugh] Miller, perhaps the Scottish geologist, who supposedly renounced alcohol and achieved academic acclaim as a result of his subsequent studies.

 

One ōban leaf, complete. Light discolouration to extremities, a few small marks, partial repair to small wormhole in the upper left. Part of the Nishiki-e Shūshindan series. 36 x 24.5 cm.
