Stories of Ten Distressed Children
(Yakushi jû-shi den, 厄子十士傅)
Publisher: Sano-ya Tomigorô
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’ refers to listing in Kuniyoshi: The Warrior-Prints by Basil William Robinson (Cornell University Press, Ithaca, NY, 1982) and its privately published supplement.
