Hiroshige: One Hundred Views of Edo

£15.00

Product description

254pp. 2003. hardback. Very good condition. DJ has a protective plastic wrapping. Hardback panels and spine in fine condition. Clean text throughout.


Modern Tokyo bears little resemblance to the city Ando Hiroshige depicted in One Hundred Views of Edo. In the late 1850's Edo, which became Tokyo in 1868, was already one of the world's largest conurbations. Even then, densely built-up areas alternated with the gardens of mansions and monasteries. Warehouses and commercial districts sat alongside rice paddies and fishing grounds. For nineteenth-century provincial Japan, Edo was the centre from which fashion, fascinating rumours and innumerable innovations were borne and disseminated. A visit to the capital was an exciting event, memories could be enhanced by souvenirs purchased there, particularly the woodblock prints of the One hundred Views of Edo series which recorded the sights and daily life of the Japanese capital in all its rich variety.
