This print was published by Doi Hangaten. They were contained in a large presentation folio. All the prints are stamped with the seals of Harada (carver), and Yokoi (printer) and are notable for their very fine impressions, color and state. All indications are that Doi specially printed these as one-off, presentation works and that they were completed c.1948, making them lifetime editions.
