About this Item

N.d., mid twentieth century. Oblong folio album of six Japanese color woodblocks. The scenes include the Full Moon Viewed on the Seta Karahashi Bridge, the Katat Ukimido Temple in the Lake Biwa, the cherry blossoms in Nara, the large Buddha of Todaiji Temple in Nara, the maples of Takao in Kyoto, and the snow scene of Kiyomizu Temple in Kyoto. The prints are striking, and in their bold colors and brush economy not at all common. Kotozuka studied at the Kyoto Specialist School of Painting and then built a career on depicting traditional Japanese scenes and ways of life in ways that blend tradition with a break from it. Each of the pictures here measure 10 by 7 3/8 inches within the card frame and the folio, or with frame, measures 14 by 10 inches, 35 by 26 cm. Scarce, with no copies turning up on OCLC. Some light soiling on the images, never disconcerting, and the portfolio shows wear and light soiling. Paper on boards forming a portfolio. Bookseller Inventory # 002127

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
