One volume, Holloway page 104, Mitchell page 383. Bosai lived from 1754 to 1826, at Edo. Mitchell says he established his own school and became very famous. 'Later in life he ceased studying and teaching and spent the rest of his days composing poetry and drinking sake'. Holloway reproduces several illustrations from the Imaginary Mountains: 9 to 12 in the black and white section. It is a book of subtle, calm, quiet, color woodcut with the most delicate and sometimes barely noticeable background tints. Commonly small figures share the landscape or view it, contemplating or fishing or conversing. Printed on fine, rather soft paper; original pale lilac covers with the remains of the original title label.
