Little Tokaido by Hiroshige
In the 1830s, Hiroshige was the author of several series of engravings illustrating the famous road between Tokyo and Kyoto that inspired so many scenes to Japanese poets and novelists.
Separate reissue in case of the smallest album dedicated by Hiroshige to this route: a facsimile reproduction that appeared in the Hiroshige box, on the Tokaido route, itself accompanied by an album showing the other types of prints dealing with the same motif.
The book is accompanied by a booklet written by Nelly Delay explaining the origin and the fortune of the inspiring theme that this road represents and describing all the plates of the album dedicated to so many stations of this famous communication route.
