|Artist Bio:||A Note on the 1970's/80's restrikes:|
One of the 12-print sets, titled "Hashiguchi Goyo 60-Year Memorial) was published in an edition size of only 150 and is dated 1981, December 1st. I assume this to be the first edition by Tanseisha. It is obvious that Tanseisha subsequently published other sets after this date, using different printers. One of these later editions included an extra print, so a 13-print edition.
A 6-print set of bijin-ga in blue canvas tatou album with edition size of 750.
A 12-print edition, size unconfirmed.
A 2-print set of large-size scenes "Hand Mirror" and "Yabakei" with edition size of around 500.
Published "Woman Combing Her Hair" in an edition size of 180 in 1988, October 20 (see database entry 46012).
Watanabe Shoichiro: Watanabe has recently (2017 or earlier) started publishing some of the Goyo scenes.
