In principle therefore, all later editions which do not carry such "margin-dating" information thusly allow a reliable differentiation.The author knows of only one print where a subsequent early edition still bears the date block--the "Kegon Falls" print (#U-3), which is known as a first edition with two different publishers seals A and B.Kasamatsu prints with the red, so-called Gift Seal ("M") are known too, but rare, and their precise dating is difficult, with most probably pre-war or immediately post-war.Sporadically, prints without any seal are also found.
Shinmi Saburo (whose name also allows the pronunciation Niimi Saburo) printed virtually all Kasamatsu prints, from the "first editions" in the 1950's until about 1996.Since this content is neither perfect nor yet complete, the author appreciates any additions, corrections and new "discoveries." As for dating, Kasamatsu's prints clearly follow the rules of the Watanabe publishing house.His earliest prints (W-1, W-2-, W-3, W-4, W-5), all published in 1919, carry either a black round 6mm seal or no seal.For different artists (e.g., Takeji Asano) some of the above shown seals were already used prior to the dates below.The predominant seal combination is B-E-G, followed by B-F-G. Publisher, carver and printer seal combinations together with a date like J are "first editions" (in Japanese jozuri) and without such date are later editions (atozuri).
