Fugaku Hyakkei (One Hundred Views of Mount Fuji) Vol. 2 Superb work by Hokusai. Lovely impression.
[Japan]. One of the most famous and most impressive Japanese books ever published. Volumes 1 and 2 of Hokusai's masterpiece were first published in 1834 and 1835 respectively, with volume 3 published a few years later. Multiple editions were published and it is very difficult to know the order of later editions. This is volume 2 and was probably published in the 1860s even though the preface is dated Tempo 6 (1835). Difficult to find in good condition and with such crisp impressions.
Nagoya. Eirakuya Toshiro. ND (c1860s).
52pp. 22.5 x 15.7cm.
In very good condition. Covers worn. No title slip. Some tiny worm holes at the top of most pages and then a slightly longer worm trail affecting the top of the last 14 pages. Still a very attractive book.
