Subject:Any information about these prints greatly appreciated.
Posted By: Chaz McCabe Thu, Sep 07, 2017 IP: 108.52.131.234

Trying again...maybe no one looks if it doesn't have the "PIC" icon next to it?

I've been tasked by my father to come up with any information I can about these two prints...artist, age, value, etc.. There are only two of them; the rest of the pictures are blow-ups of text for readability or, in the one case, a large block of descriptive text from the back of one print.

Thanks you in advance!

On the 1st and 2nd pix I can't find anything readable.
The 3rd large block of decriptive text is a cutting from a Japanese encyclopedia (pre-WWII
kana and character usage).
Caption reads,
ごゐさぎ  Goisagi (Black crowned night heron)
Actually the description of the birds depicted on the pictures.
With regards,

@I. Nagy: Thank you very much for the information! I've added the other 3 pics (I could only add 3 to the original post, so I had to wait for it to be approved by the mods). Anything helpful there?
