    Thank you very much.  I was confused by the hexagonal shaped seal at the bottom left corner.  I could not find one that exactly matched with any others

    that I found.  Obviously now, after looking at a number of his prints , he has at least 4 or 5 different Seals on his prints.... but a fair number has hexagonal shaped Seals but the writings inside the Seal varied a little.  I am relieved to confirm the Artist and the Title is a bonus.  Obviously, you can read Japanese!!!!

     

    Thanks Again

    Thank you.  I did not know that was a publisher's seal.  Does Ito Nisaburo have an Artist's Seal?  I looked in the Merritt & Yamada book and his seal

    was not in there, neither was Uchida's seal either.

    Is there a book that has most all the Publisher's and Artist's seal printed in it to help someone like me???

    Thanks for your courtesy and time

    Does Ito Nisaburo have an Artist's Seal??  If so, is it on that print?

     

    I looked in the book by Merritt & Yamada and did no find either Uchida's seal or Nisaburo's seal.  Is there a book that I can buy that most all

    publisher and artist's seals printed in it to help educate someone like myself?? Thanks for you courtesy and help with this.
