The separate rectangular seals next to ¡®kiwame¡¯ seals on both prints draw my attention. I believe they could be previously unrecorded date seals from 1805.

I tend to read these seals as follows:

1- Seal MFA Boston: 丑十¡¡Ushi (Ox) 10 = 1805, month 10

2- The seal print John is harder and more intriguing to decipher: eventually 丑十一¡¡ Ushi (Ox) 11 = 1805, month 11

Further comments or insights are very welcome.

BTW: the girl depicted in John¡¯s print plays the ¡®koky¨±¡¯ (胡弓).

Guy.
