TYPE: Kamishibai
DIMENSIONS: Each card is 10 1/4 X 15 inches.
COMPONENTS: The first set is Part I of the story and has all 16 cards.
CONDITION: A very rare subject matter and in great condition.
NOTES: In our Japanese collector’s 38 years in Japan, this is the first time he has come across a Kamishibai set issued independently in two parts, but to be viewed as a single story. He has no doubt that few of these complete double sets exist and this is the only example he has seen to date.
