by [EHON] Yamaguchi SOKEN, artist
1818. [EHON] Yamaguchi SOKEN, artist. SOKEN SANSUI GAFU. Heian [Kyoto]: Bunka 15 . 2 volumes, 26.1 x 18.7 cm, buff paper covers, original printed title slips, bound Japanese-style, fukuro toji. The covers and slips are worn. See Mitchell, p.499. [This copy is identical in collation, save that Soken's seal is missing from the colophon page and there is no publishing information on the inside back cover.] Thus almost certainly a later printing. See also Hillier, volume one, pp.537-9. A well-printed later copy, good condition. A handsome and important book of landscapes printed with great elegance. Soken was one of Maruyama O^kyo^'s greatest disciples. 2 vols., complete.
