Inada, yellow tail or amberjack ( Seriola quinqueradiata ) and fugu, blow fish or puffer ( Fugu pardalis ) with plum blossom from the second series of fish published by Yamasho, c.1840-42. Poem by Suzugaki. The number of late impressions and facsimiles of the two fish sets proves that the series was very popular at the time.

Fine impression of the rare first edition ( blue band at top; undamaged Yamasho seal, and block defect not printing ). Very good colour. Small repaired wormhole, otherwise very good condition. Signed Hiroshige hitsu.

Status: Sold
