Special notice

No VAT will be charged on the hammer price, but VAT at 15% will be added to the buyer's premium which is invoiced on a VAT inclusive basis.
From time to time, Christie's may offer a lot which it owns in whole or in part. This is such a lot.

Lot Essay

A similar scene of a figure in a rickshaw occurs on sheet 14 of Höroldt's Schulz Codex, but the scene is closer to that in an engraving published by Arnoldus Montanus, Gesantschappen aem de Kaisaren von Japan, der Ostindischen Kompagnie (Amsterdam, 1669), p. 168, which is illustrated on p. 85 of this catalogue.
