Series; Calligraphy and Pictures for the Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido, 1872

Calligraphy and Pictures for the Fifty-three Stations - Terrific design from a Tokaido Road series pairing images with verses in calligraphy for the different stations. Different artists contributed designs, including Yoshitora and Kunisada II. The large pictures include landscapes, figures from history and legend, and scenes from kabuki plays and folktales. Several prints feature comic illustrations, including the adventures and mishaps of Kita and Yaji, the bumbling travelers from the popular novel "Shank's Mare." Others include travelers in Western attire or distinctly modern Meiji subjects. These imaginative prints are beautifully detailed with attractive color and fine line work, and offer an interesting Meiji era take on the classic Tokaido subject. A great choice for collectors interested in life along the Tokaido Road.

Nissaka in Totomi Province: Mugen no Kame Nissaka in Totomi Province: Mugen no Kame - Intriguing kabuki scene of a young man about to commit ritual suicide under a large temple bell called "Mugen no Kame," the legendary Bell of Hell which features in several different plays. According to the tale, whoever strikes the bell will become incredibly rich in this life, but suffer eternally in hell after death.
