Historical Biographies of the Loyal Retainers - Handsome 1869 series by Yoshitoshi featuring portraits of each of the famous 47 ronin, accompanied by a biographical sketch. These lively images show the samurai taking parting in the night attack on Lord Kira's mansion, attacking with swords and spears, dodging objects thrown at them, or in quieter moments, searching for Lord Kira or taking a brief rest. The expressive figures are rendered with Yoshitoshi's characteristic attention to detail and individual appearance. A great subject for a collector interested in this timeless story of honor and revenge.
