14.50 x 29.25 in (36.83 x 74.30 cm)
Publisher unread. Fine impression, color and condition. Volcanic eruption of Mt Bandai, July 15 1888, was catastrophic, burying several villages. In 1888, the youngest edifice of Bandai, Ko-Bandai, collapsed in a catastrophic way after a large phreatic eruption, producing a debris avalanche that buried several villages and formed several large lakes. Seen from the south, Bandai presents a conical profile, but much of the north side of the volcano is missing as a result of the collapse of Ko-Bandai volcano during the 1888 eruption. Very little is known of this artist.
