Oji, Fudo no taki, “Fudo Waterfall, Oji” from Meisho Edo hyakkei, “One Hundred Famous Views of Edo.” The set published by Uoya Eikichi between 1856 and 1859 (this being 1857). Waterfalls were a pleasant way of getting relief from the summer heat. Japan has many hundreds of waterfalls but a considerable number are in remote areas. The government has compiled a list of 100. This is the rare first edition with strong wood-grain and mica applied to the waterfall. Provenance: Purchased from me in 1989.
