Sketches of Living Things by Hasegawa Seizo
Obscure and lovely book with intricately drawn and coloured images of birds, flowers, animals, fish and other sea creatures. Colouring looks to have been added later but very nicely done and gives the impression that the book is actually a manuscript. Japanese title 'Shorui Sohon - Gahon Hayamanabi' [生類草本 画本早学] but no references found in English of Japanese.
No place. Bunshodo. 1874 (2534).
46pp. 23.4 x 16.8cm.
Covers with some wear. Internally a few old but light stains that affect small areas of most pages. Otherwise good.
