Title: Ehon Katakiuchi Iwami Eiyuroku, 1857
Author: Katsushika Isai
Condition: Fair

A mid 19th century of the Katsushika Isai illustrated edition of the Legend of the Iwami Hero’s Revenge, a violent tale of revenge, as the titular hero undertakes a bloody path to defeat his mortal enemies. After leaving a trail of gruesome deaths in his wake, the hero repents at the end of the tale, and becomes a wandering Buddhist priest.

This work has been illustrated throughout by Katsushika Isai, a prominent pupil of the legendary Katsushika Hokusai. It was generally noted that many paintings and woodblocks associated to Hokusai were in fact done by pupils such as Isai and others. Several woodblock illustrations in this work are indeed reminiscent of Hokusai’s figure types and style.

There are 12, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, and 6 pages of woodblock print illustrations throughout.

Seven volumes in quarto, 24, 20, 21, 22, 21, 24, 27 leaves

On note of condition, these volumes are in fair shape, with rubbing and wear to the binding. The last leaf of volume 6 is torn, lacking about a third of the page. The pages are worn and lightly stained throughout.
