I have just bought a copy of the Insect Book. There was very little information about it, just that it is by Utamaro, the date is 1892 (which seems a little odd) and that it is one of an edition of 25. It is a wonderful book, in good condition. Please can anyone tell me anything about this edition. It is clearly a woodblock print, on good hand-made paper and generally beautifully. done. It must, I assume, be a reprint? I can find nothing about a late-19th century reprint, so all information would be gratefully received. Many thanks in advance for your help
