Onchi, Kôshirô (1891 - 1955)
Hakubutsu-fu (博物譜) - Natural History Notes
Book size: 14.5 x 11 cm. 26 double pages, bound in the spine, hard cover, in its original cardboard box. Five artists of the Ichimokukai group each contributed five woodblock prints: Onchi Kôshirô the animals, Yamaguchi Gen the shells, Sekino Jun’ichirô the insects, Sugihara Masami the plants and Kato Tarô the trees. Detail 1 gives an overview of 10 of the 25 prints plus endpapers. Number 14 from an edition of 250. Dated “2605” (= 1945), but actually published in 1950. First and only edition.
Very good overall condition: the book is tight and clean and in fine shape. There is minor damage to the cardboard lid of the box.
