Notes:Extremely rare - this is the only copy of this later-edition printing that I have seen. This print has Kotondo's signature and seal within the image area; Printer and carver seals, red Torii artist's seal, red publisher's 'moneybag' seal (left margin); Watermark in lower left margin. Nearly double-oban in size. Limited edition published circa 1980s.

In the 1970's Ishukankokai republished twelve Kotondo scenes, but this scene was not included in that series. However, very rare examples of this scene published by Ishukankokai do exist, in two colour states. I assume this scene was considered for inclusion in the series but did not make the final cut of twelve scenes.
