Series of ten woodblock prints by Hiroshige called "Ten Views of Kyoto." These prints are in their original portfolio which says they were engraved and printed by Uchida Woodblock Printer in Kyoto, Japan in March 1951.


These prints were purchased by my father in the early 1950s when on a tour of duty in Japan as a U.S. Navy officer. They have never been exhibited.

Thanks, Wayne, you're all set.

Quick question. Is your estimate for a single print from my series of ten images or is it for all ten images?

It's for the set. It's not a very old printing and there are a lot of these prints on the market, so the value is relatively modest. If these were 19th Century, the value would be quite a bit higher
