Description: An Otanzaku format print designed by Hiroshige depicting a rooster, blossoming morning glories, and an umbrella perhaps left outside to dry. The poem in the upper left of the print reads, "When the cock crows it means we must part, where, at the crack of dawn, roosters cannot be heard!"

This particular edition was produced by the O-Edo Mokuhan-sha, probably in the 1950-60s period. There are a few foxing spots from its long storage in their packaging, from which it has now been (thankfully) released!
