About this Item

[EHON] Katsushika HOKUSAI, artist. DOCHU GAFU, Zen. Kogetsudo Bunsuke, Nagoya, 1835 [sic]. 22.6 x 15.8 cm. Orange covers, printed paper title label. 34 sheets of double page illustrations, covering views on the Tokaido road. As Matthi Forrer devotes an entire chapter to the publishing history of this book in his EIRAKUYA TOSHIRO, it should be sufficient to state that this is the variant Kogetsudo issue, with only part of the banner present at Kawasaki. Hence it probably dates from the 1850's or 60's. The colors throughout are very light. Though the book is complete in its original covers, it is quite worn and thumbed. Despite the poor condition, it still shows why this is one of the loveliest of Hokusai's books. Bookseller Inventory # 47248
