This date seal was carved off the woodblock after the first edition. Also in the left margin are Unsodo publisher's seal, Shinmi printer's seal, Nagashima carver's seal, and Unsodo watermark. Shiro kanji and red seal in right corner.
The mark in the right margin and the cut-out in the bottom right corner (known as a 'kento cut') are due to the printing process.
