This print is signed Kochoro Toyokuni ga, censor seals Mera and Murata (1847-50) and the publisher Sanoya Kihei. There is also a title which I can't translate. Can someone please help as presumably it will tell me the character represented. I believe actor's names were not mentioned on prints at this time but if anyone could tell me who he is that would be very helpful. Many thanks Jeff
