The publisher Akiyama Buemon (Kokkeido) released Yoshitoshi’s One Hundred Views of the Moon as individual designs between 1885 and 1892. Following Yoshitoshi’s death on June 11th, 1892, Akiyama was quick to publish the full series as a set with a title page, memorial portrait, preface, and contents page. Just six days later, he ran an ad in the Yomiuri Shinbun stating that “the master Yoshitoshi has regrettably passed on, but now an edition assembling the entire set is complete.” Designed by the calligrapher Sogaku, the contents page to One Hundred Views of the Moon depicts the titles in decorative cartouches atop a pale grey botanical pattern. While this two-page diptych was released after Yoshitoshi’s death, the date seal on the margin of the contents page reads May 1892. This date confirms that Yoshitoshi and Akiyama began work on the complete album before the artist’s death.
