17 - [EHON] Koyoken, artist & editor. EHON MONO-IU HANA. Kyoto, Tsuruya Kizaemon. n.d, 21.5 X 15.3 Seven double page images in b+w woodcut, depicting lovely ladies in lavish costumes, along with waka poetry inscribed on traditional cloud bands. Very elegant, lovely images. Not precisely Sukenobu in style, nor Harunobu, either, but designed by an 18th century ukiyo-e [Kansai area?] artist of considerable skill. Koyoken, the author/artists nom-de-plume for this volume, is otherwise unknown. Only 2 copies are listed in the Kokusho Somokuroku Union catalogue of pre-Meiji era imprints. [KSSM Vol.7, 14-1]. A little staining, but otherwise a good impression in good condition of this rare work. Original printed title label, perhaps original blue paper blind-patterned wraps, bound fukuro- toji Japanese style. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
