Comments - Rare, complete set of twelve woodblocks depicting the "Chushingura," the famous drama based on the true story of the 47 ronin. These koban size designs feature figures set into nicely detailed settings, with a limited color palette. Published by Senichi with rectangular publisher's seal in the bottom corner of each print. Only Act 9 from the series is signed Hiroshige; the rest are unsigned. We were unable to find any references for this series. A great item for a Hiroshige collector.

Image Size - Each image 5 3/4" x 8" + margins as shown

Condition - Good detail. A few creases at edges. Some prints have a few repairs.
