|Notes:||Goyo artwork for the novel "Floating in Space", a collection of seven short stories by Natsume Soseki, dated May 22 1906. This is the first printing dating to 1906. Very rare, and absolutely full of Goyo works. I count no less than eleven works that contain the Goyo signature, including at least four woodblock prints. I believe all the unsigned sketches are by Goyo too. There are also seven lithographs by the artist Nakamura Fusetsu (中村不折 1866.8.19-1943.6.6).
Looking at the 4 x 4 image mozaic shown on the webpage, going from left to right and top to bottom, the following are woodblock prints: Image 7 (Ex Libris), marks from the baren on the verso; Image 2 (flowers), marks from the baren on the verso; light embossing; Image 4 (man with beard), marks from the baren on the verso; Image 9 (flower and spiders), marks from the baren on the verso.
Please see here for a more comprehensive list of artowrk included in this novel.
