About this Item

Folio. Four volumes: "Figure Prints of Old Japan." 1959. (110)ff., + 52 plates. One of 400 copies. "Landscape Prints of Old Japan." 1960. (110)ff., + 50 plates. One of 450 copies. "Ukiyo-e: The Floating World." 1962. (92)ff., + 28 plates. One of 400 copies. "Twelve Woodblock Prints of Kitagawa Utamaro, Illustrating the Process of Silk Culture." 1965. (36)ff., + 12 plates. One of 450 copies. These four volumes make up a complete set of Grabhorn Press monographs about Japanese prints of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, with prints from the collection of Edwin and Marjorie Grabhorn. The tipped-in plates were reproduced in collotype, using linoleum blocks for color. These lovely books were major collaborations between the Grabhorn Press and the Book Club of California, and Edwin Grabhorn considered this set to be one of his masterworks. All are fine copies in cloth-backed decorated boards. "Ukiyo-e" and "Utamaro" are in fine original dust wrappers. (Harlan 611, 619, 638, 652, and II, p. xix). Bookseller Inventory # 9292
