Woodblock print book - "Yakusha Suikoden", vol.3, with 3 double-paged illustrations by Utagawa Kunisada (1786-1865) and text by Tsuruya Nanboku (1755-1829) - Japan - 1829

Text by Tsuruya Nanboku (1755–1829).
Tsuruya Nanboku was an important dramaturg who brought Kabuki to a new level. see: http://www2.ntj.jac.go.jp/unesco/kabuki/en/2/2_08.html

Published by Kagaya Ichibei.

On a thin Japanese washi paper, in very good condition, with Japanese binding (folded leaves, printed at 1 side, bound together with thread).
Minor worm damage to 4 text-leaves in 1 spot.

Clear, sharp and dark printing.
The illustrations are printed on a thicker paper.
Illustrations printed with light grey, dark gray and black ink.

Cover with deep embossing: pattern of waves.

Kunisada is mentioned on the first page, with red pencil circled.

Book: covers and 1 page index, 41 pages text and 3 double-paged illustrations, and 1 page conclusion (49 pages) = 24 folded leaves between covers. All pages complete.

Size: 12.8x 18.2cm.

Pictures give good overview of the book, of its content and its condition. Pictures of all the illustration-pages, and some text-pages.

"Nanboku's plays are filled with scenes of extortion, killing and erotic entanglements. Dubbed 'kizewamono', the dramas portray people living at the bottom of Edo's hierarchical society, and they are written in a brisk, earthy idiom typical of the townspeople. Scenes unfold rapidly and various stage tricks add to the fun." (Sasaguchi Rei)

Will be sent well protected, fully insured.

    Mijn algemeen bezwaar bij uw invulling van de veiling is dat u er een wedstrijd van maakt, als je uiteindelijk de hoogste bieder bent stuurt u felicitaties voor het winnen, veilen is geen wedstrijd, z

    Er is een uitgebreide, "Nederlandse" toelichting bij, maar die is hoogstwaarschijnlijk vertaald met Google Translate, dus onbegrijpelijk :-).
