Stories of Ten Distressed Children

(Yakushi -shi den, 厄子十士傅)

Publisher: Sano-ya Tomigorô

1854

I am deferring to Robinson’s precedent by listing this as a series, even though only a single design is known.  This print is about 14 by 10 inches (36 by 25 centimeters), a size known as ôban.

 

Scene: Ôtani Furuinosuke (大谷古猪之助), as a boy, vanquishing a wild boar with his bare hands

Robinson: S85.1

‘Robinson’ refers to listing in Kuniyoshi: The Warrior-Prints by Basil William Robinson (Cornell University Press, Ithaca, NY, 1982) and its privately published supplement.
