Fine kuchi-e (口絵) frontispiece, made in 1909 by the artist Suzuki Kason (鈴木華邨) for the novel "Silhouette of Nightingale" (鳥かげ). The work is taken from vol. 15 n. 3 of the famous literary magazine Bungei Kurabu (文芸倶楽部), published by Hakubunkan (博文館).

Suzuki Kason (1860 - 1919), although known to collectors mainly for his xylographic frontispieces, indeed rather rare to find, was above all a prolific painter of traditional style, as well as a member of the Imperial Academy of Fine Arts (帝国美術院).

The print on Japanese washi paper (和紙), despite some signs of bending and a small imperfection on the upper left corner, is in good general condition.
