Notes: The exact example (Fig 3.36; pg. 83) used by Dr. Ross Walker for the illustration in his definitive Koitsu catalog.
This print was published by Doi Hangaten. It was contained in a large presentation folio designed specifically for a collection of 24 designs. 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 produced these as a one-off presentation set and that they were printed, c.1948, making them lifetime editions.
