"Fuji seen from the left on the Tôkaidô Road (Tôkaidô hidari Fuji), from the series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji (Fuji sanjûrokkei)"
No. 25 of a series of 36.

This original print by Hiroshige is part of the Meiji commemorative edition, for 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 others) (1857).
Many of the woodblock prints of the first edition are now extremely rare and valuable. This memorial series offers a good opportunity to acquire the original woodcut of this beautiful Hiroshige print.

Good condition - slight damage at the left bottom corner, see photo 7 - print is backed.

Measurements: 34.9 x 23.8 cm.

Will be sent by registered post with a tracking code, via Bpost.
