Thanks for your reply. I did a web search for Juzo Suzuki Hiroshige and got several "hits" but none for his volume that you refer to. Do you know where I could access a copy. I plan to ask some of my Japanese colleagues where I might find a copy but if you have any other leads I would appreciate it.

If I don't have any luck locating the Suzuki books, I'll scan the prints and see if anyone can provide any further information.

The most distinctive print of the set is a woman in a brown kimono standing in a boat crossing a river in snowfall with her umbrella partially closed to protect her from the snow and the cold. There are several partial umbrellas in the foreground and the background shows several snow covered rooves of Japanese houses. In the river is a distant boat with a single poler and several tiny images of water birds.
