Guy: The only half decent reproduction of this lovely design that I have been able to track down is in Michener's 'Japanese Prints - from the early masters to the modern' [Tuttle, 1959]. I have a copy of the eighth printing, 1975, where your design is illustrated in colour. It is clearly tricky trying to compare a scan with a book illustration but there seem to be significant minor block differences, especially relating to the text. I'm afraid that it looks to me that yours comes from recut blocks.
