by Okawa Chokichi
1881. A two-volume work by Okawa Chokichi; the two volumes are attached to each other by a loop of thread. The volumes are bound in paper with the traditional Japanese four-hole stab binding. All of the pages in the first volume, and some of the pages in the second volume, are comprised of a folded sheet of paper such that the folded edge is at the volume's fore edge, rather than tucked into the binding; this eliminates any bleed-through of text or image. Each volume includes a brief introduction followed by twenty-one prints in the first volume and twenty prints in the second volume. All prints are in color.
Good to very good. Some bumping and loss of material to covers, particularly at corners; this is most noticeable on the back cover near the fore edge. General age toning and some age spots, consistent with age; one instance of insect damage in volume 2, impacting the latter half of the volume.
