I have two Hiroshige prints (and two Kunisada prints) I am trying to evaluate and sell.
One of the Hiroshige prints is #14 (Hara aso no Fuji-Tokaido) from his 53 Stations of the Tokaido series. The colors and lines are very sharp. However, the print dimensions are different from examples I have found in various museum collections. My print is smaller (6” x 9.5”), versus 9 15/32 x 14 1/8 of the other examples.
Can anyone provide an explanation for this? A later, or even earlier edition?
Any illumination is greatly appreciated! Cheers.
