About this Item

[EHON] Katsushika HOKUSAI. EHON TEIKIN ÔRAI Zen. Nagoya: Eirakuya Toshiro. N.D. [Probably 1840's - originally published in 1820's]. 22.7 x 15.6 cm. String-bound, Japanese-styel, fukuro toji. Each of the three volumes consists of thirty sheets, making for a total of 90 sheets and nearly 200 Hokusai designs - landscapes, genre scenes, historical vignettes, fish, flowers, etc., etc. This guide to domestic behaviour with its charming illustrations is by no means common. Our copy is bound three volumes in one (as the Eirakuya editions are) with the original covers and printed paper title label. The Eirakuya editions, of which this is an early example, reprinted the volume one, done some 20 years earlier by Eijudo of Edo, but then added two more volumes worth of new material. Our copy is a Forrer F-23a, without the second preface, thus probably dating from the late 1840's. The impressions in the first volume are good only, but are better in volumes two and three, as you would expect from the work's bibliographic history. All in all a remarkable archive of images. The blue-green covers are bit soiled, there is a wormtrack through the first few pages, but overall in good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 70341
