Alex, thanks for the information. I believe you are correct saying it is the work of Yamamoto Chikuseki. Los Angeles Co. Museum of Art has a copy and even they give the artist as "after" Nagamachi Chikuseki. Theirs is part of an album, but there is no detail on the album. MIA notes the publisher is Kawaguchi Jiro who began publishing on his own in 1931. Merritt, Modern Japanese Woodblock Prints, has only one brief reference to Kawaguchi and nothing on Chikuseki. Ah, the joys of a novice Japanese print collector researching a minor shin-hanga artist published by a minor publisher.
