Yokohama: T. Enami, ca. 1892-1896. Original photographs. 10 1/4x 8" hand-colored album print, mounted on 11x 13 3/4" black cardboard. Protected by a sheet of modern mylar and a white mat (18x14). Captioned with a catalog number and a title in English, along the lower left corner. This image from pioneering early Japanese photographer T. Enami depicts a basket and brush seller with his cart, peddling his wares. The photograph was among the many of Enami's works to be included in the well-known multi-volume work "Japan - Described and Illustrated by the Japanese", by Captain Francis Brinkley, first issed in 1897. It is also known that Enami's neighbor Kozaburo Tamamura, another well known photographer of the era, took a very similar image of the same man with his cart on a different day. His image shows the man looking off to the left, whereas this image has the subject looking into the camera. Extemely scarce. Item #44862
