Kawanakajima gunkan (Batailles de l'île Kawanaka)

Sadahide 1860 (S.d), 12x18cm, 50 feuillets., broché.

First edition consisting of 50 illustrated sheets including many scenes on double page. The author of the text could not be identified.

The battles on Kawanaka Island took place in 1550-1560 between two shoguns: TAKADA Shingen and UESUGI Kenshin. TAKEDA reigned over Yamanashi. UESUGI ruled Nagano. Both regions are west of Tokyo. The 2 shoguns fought 5 or 6 times on the island without being able to decide between them. The island is located in the courtyard of the Shinano River. The drawings contain scenes of particularly expressive battles, on horseback, on foot, with lance or saber, often bloody, with decapitation or mutilation.
