|Notes:||Originally published by Yamada Shoin in 1953 as a woodblock print series, with later editions published in the 1960s and 70s, this particular edition is machine printed and was published by New Kobe Newspaper Company in January 1974. This is the first example of this edition I have ever seen (as of 2013), so it is quite a rare item. A full album set of the woodblock print edition costs several thousand dollars when in fine condition, so this set is a good alternative for those on a budget.
Each print has a detailed English and Japanese explanation of the depicted scene. Red artist's seal within the image area. The 'Genjimon' symbol at the top right of each print from this series changes depending on the chapter (it identifies which chapter each print is from).
See Man-Pai's Genjimon webpage for the full chart of Genjimon symbols. See a full discussion of this series in my personal collection here.
