Condition: Structurally everything is excellent - the outer case and the book boards are in excellent condition. The interior woodblock printed pages are beautiful but have scattered light foxing spots. On the good side, the stunning doll print is in fine condition, a fine impression with vivid colors. The paper of the two full size prints are of a different quality than the pages that make up the body of the book and seem to repel the moisture effects much better. The book is brush SIGNED by Sekino in Sumi ink with his red hanko seal.
