8-3/4 x 13-1/4 + Margins as shownDate of this edition: April 1858 Publisher:
A few lighter spot sand some very light soiling on the upper left near the title, and a very tiny loss on the right edge of the print. This print is in overall amazing condition. Colors are great. Mica is almost all gone though, but you will be able to find some areas where it still shines.Notes:
Splendid 1st Deluxe Edition
of this print, with mica on the blue section (bottom) from the 36 views of Mt Fuji series.
This is one of the extremely rare deluxe edition, with mica in the water, as you can see on the additional picture section. Usually, this technique was reserved for good customer or prestigious people, as the technology was fairly new, expensive and difficult to master.
A really great investment for the discerning collector.
