This print is a rare first edition, as indicated by the printing of the date in the lower right margin. This date seal was carved off the woodblock after the first edition. Also in the right margin are Unsodo publisher's seal, Shinmi printer's seal, and Okura carver's seal. Unsodo watermark top left margin corner.
The cut-out in the bottom left corner (known as a 'kento cut') is due to the printing process.
