Publisher: Yamashiro-ya Tokei Condition: Fine impression and color. Very slight vertical centerfold and light soiling at bottom corners. An extremely rare and very early Kunisada musha-e (warrior) print, quite possibly his first or close to it. The triptych depicts the young Yoshitsune, still using his boyhood name of Ushiwakamaru, battling and defeating the famous bandit Kumasaka Chohan. The print also depicts all the terrible things that would be happening in the camp of outlaws.
