Object Description
Volume X 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 X includes 56 illustrations with black, blue and orange inks. The images depict a musician, a magician, a dragon, demons, domestic scenes, a storm, landscape, the ocean, peasants, prisoners, dancing, and mice working as slaves. Page 1 - 2 and 59 are text. 59 pages. Blue binding. There is a color image (in green, black and red) on the inside of the front cover, which appears to be pasted over printed text.
