'A Day for Fishing'

This diptych woodblock print depicts a woman mending a fishnet on the left, and a man stopping to greet her on the right. He has a tacklebox of sorts, and carries a fishing pole.  This colorful diptych print, with fine embossing, is likely a tale from a storybook.  It probably dates to c1880s when storybooks were commonly found.  There are several title boxes, along with ciphers of the artist and publisher, which we cannot decipher.  Each sheet measures 4.5" x 6.75", and they are in excellent condition with tiny thread holes in the margins from its original binding.    P9512
