70/4750 Matsu ni kansuru harikawashi-shu (Collection of mounted pine trees). Scrapbook containing a collection of 34 woodcuts (2x col.) and 1 drawing (thin brush and ink) showing (pine) trees, some from one and the same series(?), some lvs. w. text only, all tipped onto paper leaf in late 19th cent. album, orig. wr. w. hashira-title, large folio.

- Many lvs. w. (some) scattered wormholes and other small defects.

= The prints, which are mainly popular prints and (therefore) very rare, mainly show the majestic old pine tree at Takasago, which in Hokusai's days was already over 250 years old and a tourist attraction. In Japan pine trees are a symbol of long life and a popular subject of 'catchpenny' prints. A detailed list of the prints in this album is available on demand. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE LXXX.
