BAIREI KACHO^ GAFU 2 vols
1899. Good. [EHON] Kono BAIREI, artist. BAIREI KACHO GAFU 2 vols. Tokyo: Okura Shoten, Meiji 32 [1899]. Large format books of oban-size color woodcut images, each sealed "Bairei." 37 x 25 cm (24 1/2 by 9 3/4 inches). Each of the volumes is comprised of 25 images, for a total of 50, that show birds throughout the changing seasons (vol. 1: Spring & Summer, vol. 2: Fall & Winter). The designs are fresh and lively - perhaps the finest of the large-format bird compilations of mid to late Meiji era Japan, and certainly the scarcest. This copy, a very good printing with lovely colors, is very clean. Mitchell 217 references this printing (seen by him) as a re-issue of the Okura edition of 1883. Both issues are very unusual. Complete, with the original printed fukuro dust-covers.
