Hokusai Manga
Magic tricks:  various amazing feats
Volume X, 1878 (later) edition, facing pages forming diptych, complete with all margins, each image area about 5" x 7".
Magic tricks, such as a candle spurting water caught in a teacup, a man sawing off his own arm while smiling, a magic gourd from which a mounted warrior emerges, pieces of paper flung in the air that become birds, and multiplying one's image.  A soft but clear print with good textile detail.
$180. the pair, postpaid and insured.
