[Editor's note] This is a remarkable piece of scholarship, generously made available by our very own hardworking Dr. Grund. It nearly goes without saying that this is an instant candidate to be the standard list of Shirô prints from this time forward.


Remarks:

English translations of the Japanese print titles vary, depending on the source. The translations listed here are mainly those of the Yamanashi Prefectural Museum Catalogue. Double descriptions like kawa/river, dera/tenjin/shrine, yama/mountain, etc. have been kept unchanged, in order to keep the titles authentic. Dimensions are of the print image, not of the paper and are in cm (Height x Width). "Self" means carved, printed and published by Shirô Kasamatsu.
