Original wood block print – Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858) – Seven Ri Beach in Sagami Province – from the "Thirty–Six Views of Mount Fuji" series – 1891 Memorial Edition

This art print was published in 1891 by Kodama Matashichi (active 1881-1894) and was printed with the original, partially edited woodblocks (added were the date / lettering in the margins) (1858). The art print is part of a memorial edition of the 'Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji' series. Many of the woodblock prints from the earlier editions are now extremely rare. This memorial series provides a good opportunity to obtain an original woodblock print of these classic Hiroshige designs.

What makes this later 'Memorial Edition' print recognisably different from previous prints is the presence of the extensive text in both the right and left margins.

Dimensions (margins not included): 33.7 x 22 cm

Condition is good. The art print is backed with paper, free from wormholes, creases and tears. Few spots at the top. Please view the photos for details.

Will be shipped in sturdy packaging.
