OK, here's another one for you all - Keyes series #316, which he reads as 'Kaisei gofūdoki'. I have not yet found any images of prints from this series, so I'm going entirely from the listing in his thesis. The machine-readable PDF copy I have of the thesis doesn't reproduce the kanji very clearly (see above); they are complex kanji, written small, and didn't reproduce well - the centers are mostly just black blobs.
I have what I think are the kanji - 魁盛 護普勲葵 - but... the kanji in the second word don't really agree with that reading ('gofūdoki') - if I even have the right kanji, of course! The second character has a reading of 'fu', not 'fū', and the third reads 'kun'.
Comments? (And, as usual, many thanks in advance for any help...)
