"A mysterious volume advertised in 1823 as Master Iitsu's Chicken-Rib Picture Book was likely meant to be a continuation of Hokusai's famous Manga series, but a published copy of it has never been found. This eclectic and engaging collection of drawings from the peerless Japanese art holdings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, may well have been intended for that lost book. Reproduced in full for the first time as a stand-alone publication, this rare Hokusai sketchbook makes for delightful fare."--Provided by publisher.
