Sensai [Kobayashi], Eikō [illustrated by].

 

[Japan: publisher unidentified, ca. late Meiji period (1890-1910s)?].

 

A 'collage' kuchi-e (frontispiece) by Sensai Eikō (1868-1933), featuring what the artist believed to be the first illustration by Nishikawa Sukenobu, a portrait of Chikamatsu Monzaemon, and illustrations by famed author Santō Kyōden and artist Ukiyo Matabei. The location of the folds in the woodblock print identify it as a kuchi-e, but the book in which it appeared remains unidentified.
