David,

Above is what appears to be the original design by Arai Yoshimune (1863-1941). An unscrupulous publisher seems to have produced a new version of the design with the artist's seal replaced by Hiroshige's signature in a mid-19th century style cartouche, thus being able to raise the selling price.

Best regards,
Hans Olof
