Subject:Hiroshige 53 stations print
Posted By: Tom Aspden Sat, Sep 19, 2020 IP:

I recently got this Hiroshige print, No. 7 of the 53 stations of the tokaido road (vertical edition). I would like some clarification on some of the markings, mainly the white box next to the main title in picture 1, the circular marks above and below Hiroshige's signature in picture 2, and the characters on the back of the print too in picture 3. I would be very grateful for any help you can provide.
