helo 庚寅五月, sorry to bother you, but I have a small request. I tried to make a transcription of the text on the right and I came up with 廣重近江八景全. As a native speaker, could you tell me if this is correct? I am especially incertain about the last character. Accoring to the source of the file this is the name of the publisher (Kawaguchiya Shozō), but if this matches by transcription I don't know. Thank you.

Hello. Although there is no mistake in the character which you transcribed, it will be better to add spaces like "廣重 近江八景 全" because the text consists of three elements. 廣重 is the author name, 近江八景 is the title, and (Zen) is the volume number notation which means that complete in one volume. The character meaning Kawaguchiya Shozō is not included. --庚寅五月 (talk) 15:34, 10 October 2014 (UTC)
That's very interesting. I had no idea. Maybe the name of Kawaguchiya is mentioned inside the book on the prints only. Thank you very much for your explanation. Regards, Vincent Steenberg (talk) 19:43, 10 October 2014 (UTC)
I'm glad to be of some help.--庚寅五月 (talk) 22:02, 11 October 2014 (UTC)
