Thanks,Guy

Did you know that this print shows -- in addition to "America" and "Russia" -- a country called "umin-koku" (ウミン国). This is the imaginary "Country of feathered (winged) people".It gives this print a humoristic side which is very original and uncommon in Yokohama-e.
I got this information from William Weatherhall.
