Item Details:

This 1st edition of Kawase Hasui's "Kiyomizu Temple, Kyoto" features the artists seal in the lower right hand corner. The edges seem are very slightly ratted, and there seems to be some bleeding from an unknown source at the very top. Other than that, no real significant defects to be found. Great item for those who're fans of woodblock prints, Hasui, or would just like to own an item by a man who was named a Japanese national treasure.

Condition: Used. Appears to be in good cosmetic condition.
