Notes: Very rare print. This print is part of a series of 7 prints, that were originally printed in a book in 1805 called Momo Saezuri (Twittering of Birds). Each of the 7 plates were printed as an individual print, in 1807, using the originals blocks from the book plates. This is why you might discern a seam in the middle of the print from the printer's blocks.
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.
