[NONOMURA, CHUBE / OGATA, KÍRIN]:
Ehon Krin (Krin Patterns). Three volumes (complete). Kyto, Suma Kanbe, early 19th century (ca 1800-30).
. An album (24.3 x 17.7 cm) containing 95 b/w woodblock-printed designs of plants and animals in the "Krin style". Lvs 16; 16; 17, double folded in the Japanese fashion. Includes two prefaces and one colophon. Ex-ownership red stamps. Text in Japanese. Original wrappers, with some minor wear, printed paper labels on covers. Housed in cloth slipcase. We believe this sketch book is a reproduction of a work titled "Krin Ehon Michi Shirube" by the artist Nonomura Chube published in 1735. Nonomura issued several design manuals (edehon) influenced by the Rinpa school master Ogata Krin (1658-1716). The Rinpa is a style within Japanese art based on nature which was developed during the 17th century. The typical Krin patterns are characterised by simplified forms with prominent and smooth outlines. A well-preserved album with charming designs of animals, insects, flowers and plants.
