Sanyo Angya - An introduction to the Sanyo area, written by Fredrick Starr, with woodblock illustrations (11 colour, 27 b/w) by a.o. Akamatsu Rinsaku, Noda Kyuho, Hata Tsuneharu, Mizushima Nihofu and Nagai Hyosai. This group of artists also collaborated on Hanshin Meisho Zue, an important set of landscape prints, also published by Bun'endo in 1916.
Sanyo Angya was published a year later, in 1917.
A fairly good copy of this rare and wanted book: the b/w woodblocks (mainly caricatures) and the colour woodblock prints (full-size pages - 18 x 10.5 cm), of which 7 are shown, are in good condition. The spine has a bit of damage. The original slipcase is included. The book is 636 pp., mainly text pages of course.
See Andon 37, p.30 for an article by Scott Johnson on this book genre. Fredrick Starr is shown in "detail".
