The impression illustrated in Sakai is dated 1843-47 because it has the censor’s seal “Tanaka” above the publisher’s mark in the lower right margin. This impression, however, does not have the seal and so has been assigned the date of 1840-42 that Sakai gives for other prints in the series.
No censor's seal
No blockcutter's mark
