|Notes (1st edition)?:||I have seen three dates written in the left margin of this print: May 28, 1931, 25 November, 1933, and 1934. Perhaps Asano hand-dated the prints in batches as they were sold over several years. It's also possible that he published two editions, perhaps as a different series.|
