Design History:
This design was part of the original series of forty-eight designs completed by October 1931 and was also included in later reprintings. The example images were taken with same camera under similar conditions. Version III copies typically do differ somewhat in printing technique and ink color from earlier version copies. The lower area of the background on Version I has a pale green bokashi not present in the entirely uninked background of the later versions.

The cineraria design in the Hodo/Takemura Floral Series was closely copied from this print (see below)
