The Earth Spider cornered in its cavernous lair by Raiko’s four retainers ( Shi-tenno ):
Watanabe no Tsuna; Usui no Sadamitsu; Urabe no Suetaka, and Sakata no Kintoki. Published by Maruya Jimpachi in 1858. Yoshikazu was a pupil of Kuniyoshi who also designed a version of this story. A fine design.

Very fine impression. The first and second sheets do not match accurately and the colour changes from black to brown. The cataloguer has noted this on every impression he has seen. Fine colour and condition. Signed Ichijusai Yoshikazu ga.
