13-3/4 x 8-3/4 + Margins as shownDate of this edition: 1834 1st editionPublisher:
A couple of repaired tears, some backing left on the upper side of the print, some general toning and a couple of repaired wormholes. Margins slightly trimmed, cutting the black kiwame seal on the left margin. Overall good condition. Good colors.Notes:
Very nice original print from Hiroshige. A must have from that serie of 10 prints called famous Views of Kyoto. Please, note that the seal on the bottom right is a collector seal, not a publisher seal. The black kiwame seal, consistent with the 1st edition of the print from that series, is trimmed but its edge is visible still.
The exact same print is currently listed at Christie's auction house, with an estimated value of $ 1,500 - $ 2,000 and might sell for even more. See auction HERE
