Birds, flowers, insects… Prints by Ohara Koson were added to New arrival.
Some Chirimen (creped) version of Hiroshige “100 views of Edo” were added to New Acquisitions
HIROSHIGE: Hashiba Ferry and roof tile kilns at Sumida River, from Meisho Edo hyakkei (One hundred views of famous places of Edo), 1857
Left; First state / Right: Later state
Printer can print up to 2,000 copies. Earlier editions are called shozuri (first state). Such big differences. The first state on left is what Hiroshige meant to be. The later state on right is also quite good impression and condition, but first state is more crisp-clear, as if you are looking with well-focused eye glasses.
KUNIYOSHI: Sakata Kintoki, Usui Sadamitsu, and Watanabe no Tsuna subdue monsters while playing go-game, triptych, 1861–Good impressions and condition, very slightly soiled, centerfold
37.8×25.9cm. each approx.
