55 coloured card plates (complete). A lovely, engaging set of card plates of the famous Hiroshige illustrations of the stations between Nihonbashi and Kyoto. No publication details. However, this edition seems to have been used by various industrial businesses as a give-away - this one from the Johannesburg branch of the Marubeni Corporation. The cards are held within a scruffy cerise wallet. There is a short biography of Hiroshige in English and Japanese. Each card has, on the verso, a short description in English and Japanese. The cards are also numbered. The cards are just beautiful. They are very fresh, vivid, energetic, enchanting, very clean and clear, astonishingly generous. A lovely set of these lovely pictures. fk.
