About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for KIHO^ GAFU by [EHON] Kawamura Kiho^, artist.

Description:

[EHON] Kawamura Kiho, artist. KIHO GAFU. Kyoto: Yoshida Shimbei, Bunsei 7, [1824]. 1 volume, complete. 5 pp. prelims., 30 double-page color woodblock prints, 1 p. final, [pseudo]-colophon. The covers are green with a blind-stamped vegetal pattern, with a title label printed in brown on buff paper. 17.8 x 25.1 cm. The covers are fairly clean, the contents very good. This copy is a bit anomalous: It differs from Mitchell's examples "A" and "B" but is more like "B" than "A". It colors are a bit later, the keyblocks are printed darkly. There is a printed title-page on the inner front cover, on yellow paper. There is no final colophon, but rather a final undated page [pseudo-colophon] listing four bookshops. The last and lead shop is Fukui Genjiro. Sealed throughout like Michell's "A" example. (Mitchell pp. 360,1; Brown p. 105; Ryerson p. 388; Kerlen #839). Kiho was the adopted son of Bumpo and his work rivals Bumpo's in freshness and simplicity. Bibliographically, a very interesting example of this lovely book. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description 1827. [EHON] Kawamura Kihô, artist. KIHÔ GAFU. Kyoto: Yoshida Shimbei, Bunsei 10, [1827]. 1 vol. (complete). 17.5 x 25.9 cm. 5 page prelims, 30 double page color woodblock prints, 1p final, 8pp ads, colophon. The covers are greyish-blue with a swirling wave pattern in mica. The title label is worn. The covers are a bit soiled and stained and the contents are very lightly thumbed with a bit of worming. Good to very good impressions and colors. Kihô was the adopted son of Bumpô and his work rivals Bumpô's in freshness and simplicity. This copy appears to resemble Mitchell's example "A" and is doubtless an early impression. (Ref: Mitchell pp.360,1; Brown p.105; Ryerson p.388). Seller Inventory # 36171
