Very beautiful woodblock print is by Yoshitoshi Tsukioka (1839-1892). "たか雄-Takao" (The Courtesan Takao) from Tsuki Hyakushi (One Hundred Aspects of the Moon), is a re-carved edition from the Showa era. First printed in 1885.  Signed on the lower left of the image. This elegant re-carved edition is by Ukiyo-e Hanga Kankokai. Published by Nihon Bijutsuga kai. This reproduction set was sold only by the publisher in those days, not at dealers or bookstores. So it is really difficult to find nowadays. Copy right seal, Carver's name, Kentaro Maeda, Printer's name, Sakuji Tanaka on the verso. Selected great two carvers (Maeda and Okura) and two printers (Tanaka and Watanabe) worked on this project. It is a really high-quality print.
