TŌKAIDŌ GOJŪSAN TSUGI. Fifty-Three Stations on the Tōkaidō. Ai-ban Yokoye. 55 Sheets in a set. Published by Ezakiya or Etatsu.
Two of these prints Nihonbashi and Akasaka are illustrated in the catalogue.
The characters of the title are written in the Gyōsho style, and on that account this series is generally known as the Gyōsho Tōkaidō. The names of the stations are the same as those of No. 54 Tōkaidō. The copyright was later made over to the Yamadaya in whose hands the print of Nihonbashi was changed. The Nihonbashi illustrated in the catalogue is the print published by the Ezakiya.
