Peter, it's usually very easy to distinguish if you have the full book as you'll find a Meiji date, a listing with "Tokyo" instead of Edo for the publisher's address, and/or a different way of publishers identifying themselves (by surname rather than trade name). Where it gets hard is with books that have been broken up. Then you have to rely on qualities like the softness of the paper (Meiji printings are generally on hard paper) the saturation of the tones (hard papers don't absorb as well) and the quality of the impression. Once you've seen both Meiji and Edo editions, there can be no mistaking, the qualities of each simply shout their differences.
: Hello friends, do you teach me how to make the difference between original edition and the Meiji edition for the manga's book by Hokusaļ? Kind regards.
