Impression Excellent. Skillful "bokashi" shading to kimono and face; extensive "gauffrage" to kimono's white collars and ribbed fan; "confetti-style" background; crisp, highly detailed carving.
Condition Very Good++. Strong colors. (Light/minimal soiling of interior page's corners; one clipped corner, one slightly irregular-sized interior page. No wormage.)

Comments Beautiful matching set of manga--the covers of which match up to form an attractive diptych composition. Inside, over 40 pages of black-lined woodblocks, mostly diptychs, with text. Quite fine condition.
