Information from Chang-su Houchins, of the Department of Anthropology. Mrs. Houchins has indicated that the material is in two groups under two titles, one being Edo meisho (Famous places of Edo) and Edo meishō zue (Famous views and scenes of Edo). She believes the first title is after an illustrated gazetteer that was published in 1836 that included celebrated temples, scenic places, street scenes, and life activities in Edo and its environs.
July 8, 2009 -- Edward F. Strange's book, "The Colour-Prints of Hiroshige," lists Hiroshige's student and adopted son Hiroshige II as the artist of "Edo meisho zue." All except "Ōkawa tan Seishō kō" are among the 57 prints listed by Strange in his catalog of "Edo meisho zue." Strange's list is not comprehensive, however, and based on the title cartouche, it appears that "Ōkawa tan Seishō kō" belongs to the same series.
