This is a beautiful sosaku hanga print by noted Japanese artist Shima Tamami. This print dates from around the time of Michener's book, 1961. It is in good condition, excellent color and impression. There is a bit of pigment bleed into the margins, a common occurrence with her prints due to the oil-based pigments she used. It is very faint, and not considered a flaw by collectors.
