During this prosperous period, a well-born painter named Numata Kashû created A Picture Book of Birds. Kashûs three-volume series blended the contemporary interest in woodblock prints with East Asias centuries-old fascination with artistic depictions of birds and flowers.

His colorful books received a lavish production from a Tokyo printer that went out of business soon afterward, rendering the volumes instant rarities. Kashûs woodblock prints were so popular that dealers carved up available books in order to sell the images individually, making complete versions even harder to find.A collectors delight, this exquisite edition reprints a rare 1930s facsimile of Kashûs works.

Its vivid gallery of high-quality illustrations features 150 images of birds that are realistic as well as charmingly traditional. Most include the species names in kanji as well as in English translations. Lovers of fine art — and of Japanese art in particular — will treasure this handsome volume, as will naturalists and rare book enthusiasts.
