Samurai Print Book Set

DATE
Year: 1798
Decade: 1790s
Century: 18th (1701-1800)
Notes: Kansei 10

Original Japanese hand-painted and hand-written manuscript book set: Taitoki. Images of samurai fighting and wearing armor, including a painting of a monster, and a rare painting of an Onsen (Hot Springs) Bath scene. It must have taken many months to compile these volumes.
