|Notes:||This is scene number six from Kotondo's bijin-ga series published via Ikeda. Edition 33 of 100 prints, never republished by Ikeda. After the edition of 100 was completed the keyblock was deliberately gouged to destroy it, and a print of this gouged keyblock was included with each of the 100 prints sold. My print does not include the original folder or keyblock print from the gouged keyblock. Obviously a very rare and expensive print. Sheet size is about 30 x 48cm.
Signed Kotondo ga with artist's square seal Kotondo; with the title, Ayame Yukata embossed on the lower margin. Published by Ikeda. The publisher's limited edition cartouche printed on verso, Ikeda hanken shoyu, hyaku mai kagiri zeppan (Ikeda, copyright; edition limited to 100). Undated, published by Ikeda in 1932 (month not confirmed).
Sheet size 29.6 x 47.7cm.
