An interesting Meiji woodblock-print of the classic novel ‘Hokusetsu Bidan Jidai Kagami,’ which was serialized from the Edo period for 30 years with 48 volumes written in Hiragana drawn by Utagawa Kunisada II and intended for a popular audience. The most dominant and influential movement of nineteenth century Japanese woodcut art was the Utagawa School. Throughout the century, Utagawa School artists were particularly adept at actor portrayals, genre depictions and scenes from mythology and folklore. The designs of Kunisada and Kunisada II influenced an entire generation of European artists including Toulouse-Lautrec, Whistler, Vuillard, Bonnard and many others.

 

This rare edition is written in a column handwritten format. This edition contains excellent illustrations throughout of different scenes from ‘Hokusetsu’ of samurai, battles, courtesans, demon and Tengu masks, and more!
