According the catalog The Age of Utamaro published by the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam in 1979, a reprint in one volume was published in Tokyo in 1892 by the publisher Okura Magobei and engraved by Umesawa Minokichi.
The original edition in two volumes of 1788 has double page illustrations. The 1892 reprint is a facsimile from new woodblocks and, if I well remember, each illustration (originally on double page) is printed on one plate.
