title inscribed Fuji sekirei
The poem is a Chinese poem not transliterated in the Kobayashi catalogue. Several characters are not clear, hence the meaning is obscure.
EditionSmall differences between it and published examples, sloppy blue overprinting, and its muted values with lack of seals suggest a later edition.
Gift of Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, Jr.
