Hi Dan,

I will try to publish the list soon on my site called Toshidama. Although I published no pictures yet. Some rudimentory information is already there.

: The first reference is to Richard Kruml catalogue 15, Print 8, misattributed to Toyokuni.

This is an important one. I didn't know about this. If you own this catalogue yourself, could you please send me a scan by e-mail ?

: The second, which I saw just recently, was a print that sold through Auction Ukiyo-e in London. I think the image is gone, but if you wrote them I think they would help you. The auction was just a short time ago, and the print flew as high as an Asahina kite!

Haha, you are right ! I saw this happen with absolute amazement. Luckely I have all the data and the image. But the date was incorrectly put at 1824, it should have been 1827 (print no. 30). This particular print was also present in an previous Lempertz catalogue which described it in more detail.
