Tokyo, Yamada Sensaburo and Fujii Rindo, 1879. In four parts. Large 8vo size (24.2 x 16.5 cm). 95 pp. Original near uniform hand-coloured pictorial soft covers.

A wonderful collection of 95 colour-printed wood engravings by the Japanese artist Fujii Rindo (active in the last quarter of the 19th and early 20th century). The designs are in a style reminiscent of the European Jugendstil, but in fact from an earlier date, and including more or less stylized cranes, swallows, shells, butterflies, lions, horses, lotus flowers, and mythological creatures; several are geometrical or bordering the abstract. The bookblocks and colour-printed covers are original. A very good set.
