Uesugi Kenshin Nyudo Terutora. Shows Uesugi no Terutora (aka Kenshin) riding into battle through clouds of smoke against his long-standing adversary Takeda Shingen. From a set of 33 prints Yoshitoshi musha burui, “Yoshitoshi’s Courageous Warriors.” Published by Kobayashi Tetsujiro between 1883 and 1886, this being 1883. A fine design.


Very fine impression of the first edition. (Which should have a three-colour cartouche; two red seals and the publisher’s address in blue in the left margin.) It was reprinted by Tsunajima Kamekichi in 1886 and there are many late printings of the set. Fine colour and condition. Full size with extra paper at left. Signed Taiso Yoshitoshi ga.
