: Pardon, which books do you mean? The titles?
: : : Pardon, but could someone in the know please tell me how one dates a kabuki print? I mean of course a kabuki print without date seal. How does one determine the play and the performance? Is there a book that cross references role names to play names? And then what book does one use to determine when the play was performed? Merci!
: : there are some books on osaka prints,if it were an osaka print dealing with kabuki matter,may be you can look into those books.
The theatrical world of osaka prints by keys and mizushima is all about the osaka prints in the philly museum of art,900 prints strong.
see if you can get hold of this book.
(if you believe your print is an osaka print)
