Numazu from the Upright Tokaido, Gojusan tsugi meisho zue. Published by Tsutaya, 1855. The old adage that familiarity breeds contempt certainly applies to this set, which was reprinted many times. Early printings, as here, enable us to appreciate this underrated set. One of the two snow scenes from the set showing figures crossing one of two trestle bridges.

Very good to fine impression. The red cartouches double printed ( only seen on early impressions ). Fine colour. Light album backing and trimmed close at bottom right but leaving black border, otherwise very good condition. Signed Ichiryusai Hiroshige ga.

Status: Sold
