Series; Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido (Reisho Tokaido)
A Fuii Arts Special Offer Auction
Reisho Tokaido - Completed between 1847 - 1852, Hiroshige's Reisho Tokaido is named for the reisho or formal style of writing used in the series title. It is also referred to as the Marusei Tokaido after the name of the publisher. Prints from the Reisho Tokaido are extremely rare as all the blocks from the set were destroyed by fire shortly after completion, so very few impressions were made. These handsome designs are nicely printed with crisp line work and fine bokashi shading. We rarely come across woodblocks from the Reisho series.

Image Size - 8 3/8" x 13 1/8" + margins as shown
