The revenge of the forty-seven rōnin (四十七士, Yon-jū-Nana-shi, forty-seven samurai), also known as the Akō incident (赤穂事件, Akō jiken) or Akō vendetta, is an 18th-century historical event in Japan in which a band of rōnin (leaderless samurai) avenged the death of their master. The incident has since become legendary.
This is a prewar book of prints ( 50) showing scenes from the 47 Ronin incident with a narrative description.
