Dear Cathy Shelton,

The title "Enjoying the Cool of the Evening by the River Side at Shijo, Kyoto" suggests that this print shows the last station of one of the famous Tokaido or Kiso-kaido series. But "No. 3, Series No. 1" says nothing to me. It probably refers to a collection rather than a series.

Also "seven women; most in boats, on the riverside" is not enough. Utamaro designed several prints with this subject.

I think you have to give the vistors of this site more info about the print. And a picture would even be better. Because the state of the print is also very important if you want some indication about prices.

If you have original prints, and if they are first or second editions, and if they are in an excellent state, they might represent a good deal of money. Both designers are famous and sought after. Especially Utamaro.

Yours sincerly, Theo de Kreijger
