Compare with same print on page 182 of the book "The Female Image, 20th Century Prints of Japanese Beauties". Prints from the 300-print limited edition were housed inside a green Japanese 'tatou' case as seen in the image below.

A true limited edition print by Tatsumi will have either the edition number written on the print, or two thin red seals in the margin.
