About This Item

1859 Japanese Samurai Lord Toyotomi Hideyoshi Tokugawa Osaka Castle Illustrated

A rare, 19th century Japanese woodblock print of "Taikouki". Taikouki is a biography describing the life of Taihe Toyotomi Hideyoshi, a Japanese samurai and daimyo (lord) considered the second "Great Unifier" of Japan following Nobunaga and preceding the Tokugawa Shogunate. Hideyoshi left a legacy including Osaka Castle, the Tokugawa class systems, the restriction of weapons, and the construction and restoration of many temples some of which are still visible in Kyoto. This book is a classic Edo era picture book describing and illustrating Toyotomi Hideyoshi's life illustrated by Utagawa Kuniyoshi! The woodblock prints began being made in 1855 and were completed in 1884. The images and text focus primarily on the military with detailed accuracy on armor, weapons, family crests, interiors, and more!

This rare biography is written in a column handwritten format with furigana for easier reading and includes illustrations of samurai duels, siege battles, castles, court meetings, scenery and more!
