Publisher - Adachi from a rare series of Edo masterwork designs. Adachi publisher seal in margin or on reverse.

Adachi was one of the most respected publishers of the 20th century. Their woodblocks were printed to the highest standards with excellent color and fine detail. Founded in 1925, Adachi also chose interesting and varied subjects for their prints and was the only publisher of many famous old ukiyo-e images.

Express Delivery Boats Rowing through Waves - Terrific depiction of express delivery boats steering through high waves in an early Hokusai design that prefigures his famous "Great Wave." One ship rolls down at the trough of the largest wave, while another is approaching its crest at left. A wonderful subject, rarely seen in reprint.

Artist - Hokusai (1760 - 1849)
Image Size - 7" x 9 3/8" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. A couple small creases at edges. Please see photos for details.
