[EHON - CREATIVE PRINT] TANBAYA Hikobei. PANATORIE NO ETO EHON 12 vols. #29 of 50 copies printed in Shôwa 51 [1976]. The box in which the 12 little volumes, each dedicated to a zodiacal animal, are enclosed is 16.2 x 11.7 cm publisher's box with a paper label. Charming little books of varying sizes, some quite tiny, are illustrated in color woodblock in a manga-esque style. The condition is fine throughout, the books themselves are string-bound Japanese-style, fukuro-toji. The illustrated stories of animal tales to fit the zodiacal signs are subversive, to say the least. As issued, very fine.
