"why does he jump directly from #200 to #202 - where is series #201?"
Keyes assigned numbers to all the Yoshitoshi prints he could find - including single prints, as well as those which are part of series.
For prints which are part of a series, the numbers are in two parts: the number for the series, and the print within the series. (So the famous print "Muraoka of the Konoe clan bound with rope" from the series 'Personalities of Recent Times' is number 488.14.)
Other prints, such as individual triptychs, have numbers which are just single numbers. So the 201 between the series 200 and 202 is "Kiheitai hoheitai ōchōren no zu (Drill of the French and English Troops)", a triptych printed in 8/1867.
My "Complete List of Print Series" page:
only lists the series; when we have them all done (which should only take a few more years :-), we will go back and add all the individual prints.
I hope that make the numbering situation a little clearer...
