Remarks
50 impressions as at June 1929
Many atozuri prints made during the 1970s and 1980s were extremely poorly printed utilising fewer blocks and fewer colour impressions compared with earlier prints. Some prints were missing the metal keyblock's impression. Some had the English title and signature printed over the blue sea or, even reversed, with the signature on the left.
