Offered for sale is a wonderful, first edition Japanese woodblock print by Kawase Hasui (1883-1957), titled Gionbashi Bridge, Asakusa, from the series Selection of Scenes of Japan, 1924. This design is illustrated at plate 113 of Kawase Hasui Mokuhangashu (Kawase Hasui Catalogue of Woodblock Prints), Narazaki, Muneshige, ed., (Tokyo: Kodansha & Mainichi Shinbun, 1979). It is part of a series of 36 aiban format prints that were published by Watanable Color Print Co. between 1922 and 1926 (Narazaki plates 82 -117). While this design bears a circular Watanabe seal in the lower right corner of the image, savvy Hasui collectors know that the post-earthquake designs from this series are an exception to the general rule of determining the state of post-earthquake/pre-war designs by the presence of a publisher's cartouche in the margin.

This print is has wonderfully fresh colors and is in very good condition, with no condition issues to note, aside from some faint toning reverse and thinning on the top reverse corners. The image measures approximately 11 by 8 1/8 inches, plus margins.
