|Title:||The Great Battle at Kokkoday - 黒溝臺附近大激戦|
|Series:||The Illustration of the War Between Japan and Russia|
|Date:||1906, February (this artwork: First edition)|
|Publisher:||Shobido (Tanaka Ryozo) - 尚美堂 （田中良三）|
|Medium:||Lithograph - 石版画|
|Format:||Double Oban - 特大版, 54.5 x 39.8cm|
|Notes:||This lithograph is interesting because the artist and publisher is none-other than Tanaka Ryozo - owner of Shobido. Koitsu scholars will remember that Shobido published many prints by Koitsu in the mid to late 1930s. It's surprising to see Shobido publishing prints at such an early date.
The Japanese text reads "In fighting back the enemy which attacked from the left wing, our army in
Manchuria bravely defeated it and gave serious damages to the enemy.
I (Meiji Emperor) was profoundly pleased by the remarkable achievements of
all the officers and soldiers who painfully campaigned in this battle."
