|Condition:||Fine. Light even age toning on the verso (the verso image below shows the verso too white). Remnants of original folder mount on verso.|
|Notes:||Early edition with the all-important jizuri (self printed) seal in left margin, followed by the date, Taisho jugonen saku (made in Taisho 15 ), and the title Himejijo. Signed in sumi ink, Yoshida, with artist's seal Hiroshi, in the image area. Vivid, pristine colours.
This print was purchased from a consignment of over 75 woodblock prints (by Koitsu and Yoshida), all with datings from the 1930's to no later than the early 1950's. All but a couple of these prints seem to have never been displayed and have vivid pristine colours on creaseless paper. They were probably purchased and then simply stored for the last 60+ years.
