About This Print and the Portfolio Thirty Subjects [Views] of Kyoto

This print, mounted on its original stiff board, serves as the index to the portfolio of thirty prints titled Thirty Subjects of Kyoto published by the Uchida Art Store (Uchida Woodblock Printing Company) in 1936.  The thirty prints along with this index and a decorative cover board were originally sold in a handmade box, as shown below.  It is not known, if the thirty prints in the series were sold individually, but I imagine they were. Uchida reissued may, if not all of the prints, after WWII as part of the series Twelve Months of Kyoto (Kyo-meisho junikagetsu).

Until I came across an image of the colophon for the set, see below, I was not able to nail down the  publishing date, which is now confirmed as October 1936.
