|Notes:||At first glance this print appears to be from the "official" 1929 26-print series. However, despite the fact that the scene is essentially the same as that of the 1929 edition, on closer inspection it has quite different carving. E.g. there are no power poles and lines in this scene. It also does not contain the usual edition details on the verso. This print is, with little doubt, a very rare example from the circa 1915 trial printing.
The "official" 1929 series comprised of 26 designs and is exceptionally rare. Each print bears the title and publisher's stamp verso together with the notation Kiyochika Fukei Shin-ga Hampu kai (Society for the Distribution of Kiyochika's Landscapes). See my article here regarding this exceptionally beautiful and important series by Kiyochika.
