Japanese Meiji Period woodblock print from the series "The Calendar of Events in Edo Theater" by Adachi Ginko (1874-1897) dated in the left margin Meiji 30 (1897). The series depicts various scenes and events surrounding kabuki theater. This image illustrates a parade of actors preceding the commencement of the theater. A description of the scene is in the white cartouche at the top. The series title is at the upper right. The artist’s red seal is at the lower left. Paper size: 14 1/4"V x 9 7/8"H. Very good overall condition with excellent color. This print has never been framed or exposed to sunlight. It is not backed and the baren marks are clearly visible on the reverse. There are tiny losses to the paper edges and some thinned areas in the paper, particularly along the edges. There is a light stain at the top by the text cartouche, which is more visible in the image than in the actual print, and there are a few small brown spots.
