Station Fukushima from Kisokaido rokujukyutsugi no uchi, “Sixty-nine Stations of the Kisokaido.” The set of seventy prints was started by Eisen and published by Hoeido in 1835, but in 1837 Hiroshige took over and completed the series with the publisher Iseya Rihei (Kinjudo). Fukushima was one of the four most important checkpoints in the country and travellers had to have their documents inspected and approved before they could continue.

Superb impression. Very fine colour. Fine condition. Signed Hiroshige ga.

Status: Sold
