Nangaku Bumpo^ TEKURABE GAFU
1811. Good. [EHON] Kawamura BUMPO & Watanabe NANGAKU. Nangaku Bumpo TEKURABE GAFU. Naniwa [Osaka]: Kawachiya Kihei & Teito [Kyoto]: Fukui Genjiro, Bunka 8 [1811]. 26.0 x 17.8 cm. Yellow covers, string-bound, fukuro-toji, printed paper title label. See Mitchell 324-5 for more on this bibliographically complex book. Resembles his "B" example in one volume with alternative title of the KAIDO KYOKA AWASE, with which it is pictorially identical, save that this variant issue is printed with the key blocks only, black and white. Hard to establish a chronology of the various issues as they all have the same colophon, but one would think this to be a later issue. There is a subsidiary colophon glued to the inner back cover, listing not only Fukui Genjiro of Kyoto but also Fukui Konosuke and the Fukui publishing house in Doshin, Ise. Fair to good impressions. A wonderful collaboration from these two great artists, alternating their designs in succession. Quite an unusual book. The b+w prnting and change of printer/publishers points up the enormous complexity of Japanese bibliography. Overall good original condition.
