Remarks
The actual edition size of Ishukankokai reproductions is unknown, however, it was probably 2000 to 3000. These reproductions are quite common. The first of these reproductions was an edition of 100 and is identified by a shiny silver inner folder. Then followed a numbered edition of 450, a "first print" numbered edition of 750, and finally an un-numbered open edition, all of which had a beige inner folder.
Original in 1929 publisher Sakai & Kawaguchi, carver C. Ito, printer W. Komatsu, 14 blocks, 20 impressions, 300 copies.
