Copy-book of Loyalty
(Chűk˘ tenarai-z˘shi, 忠孝手習艸紙)
Publisher: Kazusa-ya Iwaz˘
I am deferring to Robinsonĺs precedent by listing this as a series, even though only a single design is known.á This print is about 14 by 10 inches (36 by 25 centimeters), a size known as ˘ban.
Scene: The loyal farmer Shiradayű (百姓白太夫) weeping as he holds up a tray bearing an unsheathed sword
ôRobinsonö refers to listing in Kuniyoshi: The Warrior-Prints by Basil William Robinson (Cornell University Press, Ithaca, NY, 1982) and its privately published supplement.
