Recently purchased at an estate sale - Reisho Tokaido #15 - Yoshiwara, big Fuji to the left, woman on horse, another woman w/walking stick, porters, etc. It seems to be a second state - no purple block in the kimonos, no flesh-tone block, and the porters' faces and skin tone are a darker, copper color which is used throughout. Is it a second state? Or is the more lavishly colored a deluxe edition? Something else? My understanding is that the blocks burned before too many impressions could be made - it's not a later reproduction, is it? Thanks.
