Yoshio Okada's Genji Emaki scans

Notes: These Genji prints used quite low quality pulp paper and have deteriorated quite markedly over time - both foxing and toning. A typical Yuyudo edition size was 450+10 HCs so it seems reasonable to assume similar in this instance. Auction prices for the full set in 2019 ranged from 55,000 to 75,000 yen. Auction price for the full set in 2020 had escalated to 130,000 yen. The price rise catalyst was very likely printmaker David Bull's videos on the prints.
