Description — Click to read

Fine impression and colour, with mica powder and strong wood-grain, in very good condition. This very ambitious series of ‘Views in different Provinces,’ being exceeded in number only by the ‘Hundred Famous Views in Edo’, consists of sixty-nine plates and a title-page with list of contents. Owing partly to the large number of plates comprised in this series, they are of very varying quality. Some views are amongst Hiroshige's master-pieces; speaking generally the views of coast, lake, and river scenery are the best, while those of inland scenery are inferior. The series as a whole, however, is notable for the careful gradation and shading of different tints, one into the other, particularly in the views of rock and mountain scenery. Provenance: Hugette Berès, her mark on the verso.
