Souvenirs of Edo - Lovely woodblock print from Volume 4 of Hiroshige's "Souvenirs of Edo" (Ehon Edo Miyage), an illustrated series of landscapes originally published in ten volumes from 1850 to 1867. These attractive designs feature beautiful and well-known scenes around the city of Edo, from cherry trees in bloom to pedestrians walking along a riverbank, capturing the highlights of the capital in all seasons. According to the preface of Volume II, "If one has never seen Edo, to look at this book is sufficient: this is the best souvenir to take home or abroad."
