Notes: This print is a 2nd edition of an original long surimono (Ebangire format) that was originally printed in 1806 (See example from the Museum of Fine art HERE)
Many of these long surimono were printed a second time and reduced in size into a more commercial Oban format. In the trimming process, the signature oftentimes did not make it. A similar print is also referenced by the Museum of Fine art visible HERE
Pictures: Pictures are taken outdoor, in the shade, to reflect true colors, without any enhancements of any kind. The last picture is taken indoor, with a light behind the print, to reveal the exact paper grain, holes if any, or other possible flaws.
