A very fine production from the early 20th century. The first three volumes cover Japanese painting mostly from the Edo period, the final two Chinese painting from the Ming and Qing dynasties. It is unclear whether this work is that of a single collection or various collections. In the introduction the author states that he has viewed all the works so at least it can be assumed that the paintings were held in Japan. Minor worming to first few leaves of the first volume affecting the margin of just one plate, otherwise confined to blank margins. Otherwise all volumes in fine condition. Cloth case with wear. Text in Japanese. Very rare.
Subjects: Painting
