A Japanese Woodblock Printed Title Page to Hiroshige Series "Views in 60-odd Provinces" 1856. Edo Period. Size with mount 16 1/4 x 11 1/2 ins. (41.2 x 29.3 cms) Title pages are often discarded and consequently quite rare. This example is the title and contents page for one of Hiroshige's most celebrated series "Rokujuyoshu meisho zue" (Famous Views in 60-odd Provinces) dated 1856. It is mounted on an album page of gold flecked paper. There is surface soiling, a brown stain near the top and a worm hole half way down on the left side (see photos). Please note this is an original printing NOT a facsimile or reprint.
