Volume VII from Hokusai's set of Manga, intended as primers for aspiring artists. In this series of 15 volumes, designed from around 1813 through his final years, Hokusai produced a veritable pictorial encyclopedia of Far Eastern life and legend. The series was originally intended as a set of copybooks for art students but soon made the artist's name known throughout Japan and, eventually, throughout the world. Volume VII includes 55 illustrations with black, blue and orange inks. The images depict birds, mountains, the ocean, ship with sailors, peasants in a storm, rural landscapes, bridges, travelers, and turtles. Page 1 and 2 and 58-65 are text. 65 pages. Blue binding.
