Full title, "Images from the Floating World: The Japanese Print, Including an Illustrated Dictionary of Ukiyo-E" by Richard Lane. This is an indispensible classic on woodblock prints. Lots of color plates show the history of these "floating world pictures". The illustrated dictionary section includes Hiroshige's complete "100 Views of Edo" and "53 Stations of the Tokaido" in thumbnails plus publisher and censor seals, signatures and crests.

Dorset Press New York 1978. Large quarto, hard bound with unclipped dust jacket, 364 pages; 900 color & black & white illustrations. Tight & bright; only sign of shelf wear on dust jacket.

A superlative reference book.
