Impression Excellent. Extensive "gauffrage" pattern to entire cover's background; crisp, highly detailed carving.
Condition Nearly Excellent. Strong colors. (Very light/minimal soiling--unusually clean. No wormage; few tiny holes left edge of right manga's cover.)
Reference/Illus na
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 (note, final page is NOT folded--rather it's printed to "look" that way). Exceptionally fine condition. Earlier than many "manga"--by Toyokui I.
