A neat set of woodblock images mainly showing individual warriors in black and white woodblock images, with complex decorative text decorating the edges of the image.
Born near Edo in 1807, Gyokuransai Sadahide was a gifted student of Utagawa Kunisada, one of Japan's most renowned woodblock artists. This compilation features more than a hundred hard-to-find examples of Sadahide's artistry, including prints of heavily armoured samurai, battle scenes, and well-defended fortresses. Drawn from a series of volumes originally published in 1863, the dynamic images offer authentic views of warrior life during the Edo period.
