Akasaka kiribatake uchu sekikei, “Evening View of the Paulownia Grove at Akasaka in the Rain.” The replacement print for the Meisho Edo hyakkei “The Hundred Views of Famous Places in Edo” after 1858 probably because the blocks were damaged, and a superior design to Hiroshige’s. Published by Uoya Eikichi, 1859.

 

Very good impression. (The same impression as is illustrated in Ukiyo-e Taikei, XVI, 48-2.) Fine colour. Very small binding holes in margin, otherwise fine condition. Signed Nisei (the second) Hiroshige ga.
