Edward F. Strange's book, 'The Colour-Prints of Hiroshige', was first published in 1925 by Cassell & Company, London in an Edition de Luxe of 250 numbered copies and as a standard trade edition. It was reprinted in an unabridged edition with the title 'Hiroshige's Woodblock Prints - A Guide' by Dover Publications of New York in 1983. It is currently unavailable from Dover Publications.

This html edition was prepared (mostly) from the Dover reprint. Accents on the transliterated Japanese words have been omitted due to them not being present in most european character sets. The images used are those already present on this site and are not necessarily taken from the book, but where an image is not available, a scan of the image in the book has been made. Where available, a colour image rather than what was originally a black and white half-tone image has been used here.
