    Thank you guys very much. Hugely helpful.
    Does any one have any experience with Amazon and Australia. I know its a massive site and yadda yada yadda but i've never used it and experience will save you making someone elses mistakes.

    Great list! I'm lucky enough to have these in my library as well.

    Also, check out the two collected books of Kuniyoshi prints: Heroes and Ghosts, and Kuniyoshi: The Warrior Prints. Great stuff.
