Kono Naotoyo Bairei’s woodblock prints, “Plate 30: Hibiscus” & “Plate 31: Daylily”, 1890

Kono Naotoyo Bairei (幸野楳嶺) (1844–1895)

“Plate 30: Hibiscus” and “Plate 31: Daylily”, 1890, published by Tanaka Jihei (and later by Yamada Unsodo) in Kyoto (Kyoto-shi) in the four-volume series of 200 woodcuts, “Chigusa no Hana” 千種の花 (Flowers of a Thousand Varieties). I understand that that these impressions are from the first colour edition and that there was a black and white edition published in 1889. (Note that there may be inaccuracies in my description and I apologise if this is the case.)

Colour woodblock prints on fine buff washi paper.

Size: (each sheet) 23.8 x 15 cm.

Condition: both sheets are strong and well-printed impressions in near pristine condition with no tears, holes, folds, abrasions or significant stains.

I am selling this pair of original polychrome woodblock prints for a total cost of AU$300 (currently US$201.19/EUR193.66/GBP167.52 at the time of this listing) including Express Mail (EMS) postage and handling to anywhere in the world, but not (of course) any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries.
