This truly is a wonderful set of resources.I happen to have a couple if items - including a gunner's powder mill - that might be worth adding to the images files. Are additions possible and welcome?

Peter

Peter, post them on the forum so we can see and discuss what you have.

Many thanks Johan. To me this suggests a hunting scene with the dog and matchlock and accessories lying on the ground, the presence of the hunter and the prey inferred rather than depicted.

An unusual scene. Sadly, as is frequently the case with Ukiyo-e, Netsuke and other Japanese arts, I do not think the artisan had a very good understanding of matchlocks!!! :(

Found this one yesterday:

No doubt he has duplicated a large part of the Sugawa website, but looks like there are some new pics there.

Brian,

When I click on that link, I had to download and add something to my Firefox browser.  Now when I click on it again, all I get are ads.
