Miya, atsuta shinji, “Miya, Shinto Ceremonies at Atsuta Shrine” from the Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido. The set published by Hoeido and Senkakudo, c.1833-4. Shows the annual festival on the 21st day of the sixth month. Two groups of men drive two horses with long ropes. On the right is the torii of the famous Atsuta Shrine, the second oldest in Japan and renowned for housing an imperial sword. This is the extremely rare first edition. Very fine impression with strong woodgrain. This is one of the most difficult designs to find in early state. In even the earliest printings, as here, the seal beneath the signature shows damage, and on later printings the seal disintegrates even more. Fine colour. Two expertly repaired wormholes upper left and right edge, otherwise very good condition. Signed Hiroshige ga. Status: Reserved
