GOZAN SOSUI
1921. [SKETCHTOUR ALBUM] Otani Sonyu. GOZAN SOSUI. [Kanao Bun'endo, Tokyo, 1921] Oblong 4to in size, 22.3 x 30.7 cm, green brocade over board covers, printed paper title label. Prefatory printed calligraphy by Tomioka Tessai and 41 prints designed by Sonyu, a recognised artist and priest at Nishi Honganji Temple in Kyoto. The table of contents only calls for 40 prints, our copy has two versions of the same scene with the same printed title, in very different styles at Pages 16 and 17. A beautiful set of views of China - this is the color woodcut album which was originally accompanied by a facsimile of the travel diary that his brother, the Abbott of Nishi Honganji, kept on their joint journey through China depicted herein. Very scarce, wonderfully well printed. The covers are worn on the outside, but the images are clean and lovely. The album is complete in itself but without the diary.
