According to the 1930 Toledo exhibition catalogue, the blocks for this print were carved by Maeda Kentaro (active ca. 1924-61) and printed by Oiwa Tokuzo. The additional publisher seal on the right margin and lack of limited edition seal on verso indicates this is from a later edition printed after the successful Toledo exhibition.
