Izu, Goseiki no Mida, A boat navigating a rocky promentary from Hokkei’s most famous series: Shokoku meisho, ‘Famous Views of the Provinces’ ( here Izu Province ) published by Eijudo and Nakamuraya Katsugoro, c 1830’s. This set of long, narrow, large-tanzaku format prints is one of the finest landscape series by any artist and is extremely rare. The complete set of thirteen prints is listed in Images from the Floating World, Richard Lane, 1978, p. 254. I have located images of 7 from this set but am unable to find the others at the moment. ( Images found for: Lane 3; 4; 5; 6; 8; 9; & 13. )

Very good impression and colour. Minor soil and small expert repairs at top two corners, otherwise good condition. Signed Hokkei ga.
