It might be useful to compare Pyne's work with the famous "Hokusai Manga" series, from which the modern term manga is derived.

Hokusai's Manga books were first published in 1814, predating but roughly contemporary with Pyne;s work. Hokusai's studies of everyday peoples' activities were starting to become known in the West by Pyne's time.
