Subject:Need help with Ogata Korin print
Posted By: Eric Maloney Thu, Jun 07, 2018 IP: 71.168.90.161

This was laid into a photo album belonging to two missionaries who were in Japan around 1905. I would appreciate any info regarding when and by whom it was printed. Thanks in advance.

A more clear close up pic only from the printer's colophon (Red printed text) would be appreciated.

With regards,
I.Nagy

Thank you for the response. I've added larger scans of the printed text.

Sorry for the long silence - which was due to my
absence from home.
The title reads,
光琳画譜後篇第五 - Kōrin Album Second Part No.5
(Ogata Kōrin 尾形光琳 1658-1716
Japanese painter, laacquerer and designer)

Colophon says that this albun was published in
the 27th Year of Meiji (1894) in Osaka,     Name of author, Fukui Kinjiro (福井金二郎)
Name of editor, Aoki Kōsaburō (青木恒三郎)
The seal reads,
祝 ‐shuku - One of the names of Korin was 方祝
Hōshuku

With regards,
I.Nagy
