||Very Fine. Nicely executed "bokashi" shading throughout print; life-like reflections in water; highly detailed, crisply carved lines.
||Excellent. Strong colors. (No flaws noted.)

||Beautiful and evocative Meiji-era riverscene of Edo's "New Great Bridge"--titled also in English, indicates intended for dual audience. (Printed from superbly and accurately re-cut blocks shortly after WWII.)
