Poem by Mochizuki Kagenari.
First edition of this design is illustrated in Surimono from the Chester Beatty Collection by Keyes (pg.39).
In the 1880s publishers took earlier surimono designs and printed them in a number of small edition sets. These prints were sometimes sold to the early Western travelers to Japan. Like the original impressions of these designs, these surimono were exquisitely printed with elaborate embellishments.
