|Notes:||Also titled "White Shawl". This beautiful print was first published by the Ishukankokai Publisher of Tokyo in a limited edition of 100 pieces. They quickly sold out and are very difficult to come by these days. Narazaki publisher's seal, Koike/Watanabe printer and carver seals, and a watermark in left margin. Strong ink bleedthrough. Comes with original deluxe folder. The most sought-after scene of this series. Absolutely gorgeous! See the full series here.
