Original woodblock print - Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858) - Atagoshita and Yabu Lane (Atagoshita Yabukôji) - 1892 Memorial edition.

This original print by Hiroshige is part of the Meiji commemorative release in which parts of the original and complete woodblocks were used to republish the entire series.
This art print was published in 1892 by Kodama Matashichi (active 1881–1894) and was printed with the original, partially edited woodblocks (added were the date/lettering in the margins, among other things) (1857).
Many of the woodblock prints of the first edition are now extremely rare and very expensive. This memorial series offers a good opportunity to get your hands on the original woodcut of this beautiful Hiroshige print.

Condition: very good with some minor fading of the colours due to age. The back has minimal remains of the old backing.
Fully intact, stunning print.

The print will be carefully packaged and sent by registered post by Bpost Tracking.
