Ross: This would be the first edition, with Watanabe A seal in the lower right margin.

A good unframed colour woodcut by Shotei of Mount Fuji. I have played safe by dating this to post 1940, but it may in fact be earlier, judging by the condition of the backing card, to which the print is glued.

There is a small blemish at the top left corner, probably from a previous overmount (see photo) and slight intrusion of the glue over the right edge margin - again from a previous overmount (and clear in one of the photos). Finally, there are a couple of lateral lines about half way down and 3-5 inches in from the left margin. I have looked at these carefully under a glass and believe that they were either intended by the artist or are perhaps a slight printing fault. Colour is superb.

Size: 9.5 x 14.5 inches (image); with quarter to half inch slightly uneven margins all round
