Description

Hand-coloured printed leporello, ten panels and "title", each panel c.230 x 145 mm, opens to 1585 mm, folds to c.230 x 75 mm, each panel folding in half, plain card outer wraps. In recent blue cloth maru-chitsu case with bone toggles.

Illustrations

Ten hand-coloured plates illustrating the method of securing the cords of the menpo - face-plate- and kabuto - helmet.

Condition

Evidently heavily wormed at some stage, the leporello has been painstakingly, professionaly restored throughout, and despite the repairs remains highly attractive, very good.
