Original woodblock print book written by Ryutei Tanehiko 柳亭種彦 (1783-1842) and illustrated by Utagawa Kunisada 歌川国貞 (1786-1865) - "Inaka Genji" 田舎源氏, vol. 11 - Japan - 1836
Inaka Genji (田舎源氏), translated variously as The Rustic Genji, False Murasaki and a Country Genji, or A Fraudulent Murasaki's Bumpkin Genji, is a late-Edo period Japanese literary parody of the Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu.
The work, by Ryūtei Tanehiko (柳亭種彦) (1783-1842) with illustrations by Utagawa Kunisada, was published in a woodblock edition between 1829 and 1842 by Senkakudō.
It was the best-selling example of the genre known as gōkan (合巻), a popular literary form that merged image with text.
The plot centres on the outlandish adventures of Ashikaga Mitsuuji, second son of Ashikaga Yoshimasa, while seeking to recover a stolen sword, mirror, and poem, upon which the security of the realm depend.
