Condition: A few spots of Foxing. Trimmed to the margins. Very good colors, although the yellow has some fading. Fair overall condition.
Notes: This print was made before the big Kanto Earthquake that destroyed the blocks and the unsold inventory. It has never been re-printed. With an increasing demand from collectors, and the lack of supply, these pre-earthquake prints are becoming more and more valuable.
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.
