1918 One Hundred Famous Views of Edo prints from publisher Uo-ya Eikichi - These 1918 prints are from a beautiful posthumous reprint release of Hiroshige prints by the original series publisher Uo-ya Eikichi. In 1918 Uo-ya Eikichi re-released a complete set of Hiroshige’s "One Hundred Famous Views of Edo" in a small edition, with prints of the highest quality rivaling those of the lifetime edition. Using only the most skilled printers and carefully matching the paper and inks to the
Temple Gardens, Nippori - Lovely view of the grounds of three Buddhist temples near the outskirts of Edo. Visitors to the shrines enjoy the colorful blossoms of the cherry trees and azaleas as they stroll about the area and climb the small hill at right towards the buildings of Sushoin Shrine. An interesting feature is the unusual boat-shaped topiary just above the signature cartouche at lower right, which would have been immediately recognizable to Edoites. Attractively colored and shaded.
