NOTES ON HASUI LATE EDITION WOODBLOCK PRINTS PUBLISHED By  WATANABE

We offer Hasui First Edition Woodblock Prints when we can find them and these can always be found at the top of the Hasui page.

The rest of the scenes shown on this page are Late Editions hand printed from the ORIGINAL hand carved woodblocks using traditional hand printing methods, traditional hand made washi and inks made to original recipes to create identical colours as the first editions .

In a recent discussion with Shoichiro Watanabe I learned that any woodblocks used to print from can only ever print a maximum of 3000 prints. After the earthquake in 1924 which destroyed the Ginza district and destroyed some of the Watanabe woodblocks Shoichiro's grandfather made it a rule to guard these original hand carved woodblocks and only ever print low numbers of any scene at one time in order to offer these original scenes for many years. These have been saved by the Watanabe company and only Created 100 prints at a time.

From the mid 1940s the company began to use the carved woodblocks saved from the earthquake to print Late Editions of earlier scenes and to the family's great credit every time a late edition is printed a seal which records the date of printing to a specific period of time is hand stamped on every print. The only seals used up until the present period of time for late edition prints are the:

6mm round seal - Used on late editions between 1946 and 1957

7mm round seal - Used on late edition between 1957 and 1988

7mm round seal and red Heisei seal in margin - Used from 1988 until the present day.

 

It should be noted that between 1946 and 1957 Hasui created a number of new prints so some prints displaying the 6mm round seal will be First Editions and this can be authenticated by the date of first printing.

 I am often asked whether the late edition scenes on my site are "Original".

My answer is that they are as Original as the first editions as they have been created using the Exact Same Hand Carved Woodblocks, methods and materials but they are not First Editions.

 In my opinion all late editions whenever they were printed have a value which is totally dependent on condition. Some dealers seem to imagine that a late edition created over the period 1946 to 1957 when Hasui was still alive has a higher value than other late editions but I do not agree with this supposition. The Condition of a late edition is the only method of valuation except of course when the Original Carved Woodblocks are worn out and then rarity becomes the issue.
