Notes:Artwork for the first edition of the novel "Faint Light" by Masamune Hakuchou (1879-1962), dated June 20, 1911. Very rare. The book spine, and probably the cover too, is a rare and lovely woodblock print by Goyo. Butterflies and dragonflies are common elements in Goyo's early works. The sketch inside may also be by Goyo.
