|Date:||1929 July (this item: First edition)|
|Publisher:||Sakai Kawaguchi - 酒井川口|
|Medium:||Woodblock - 木版画|
|Format:||Large Oban - 大大判, 26.0 x 40.9cm (image size)|
|Notes:||Edition 92/200 from the export edition. Embossed title and publisher seals in the lower margins. Limited edition note on the verso. Sheet size 30 x 46.7cm. This is the first colour state and was published prior to Sakai and Kawaguchi becoming separate businesses. A later colour state was published by Kawaguchi alone (having a deep red kimono with a purple obi). There may be a second colour state, light red kimono with a red obi, but I need to confirm that it is not the result of fading (see my JAODB research database). 169.1 in The Female Image.
