Koganei in the province of Musashi 武蔵小金井 No. 12 from the series '36 Views of Mount Fuji' - Commemorative edition from 1891
'Memorial Edition' reprint (see texts in the margins) 1891 by Kodama Matashichi (active from 1881 to 1894). Superb woodblock prints by Hiroshige, rarely offered for sale.
The 'Memorial Edition' series consists of prints made with the original blocks and, in some cases, with the addition of new blocks.
Memorable woodblock print by Hiroshige, very difficult to find in first edition, superbly detailed with fine lines and very subtle depiction of shadows.
These reprints are a great opportunity to acquire these classic Hiroshige prints.
Öban format: 356 x 237 mm
Paper lined print to be mounted in the album of the series.
In very good condition, fresh and bright colours, no holes, no creases (small pieces missing on the paper lining; it does not affect the woodblock print)
