Description: An ōtanzaku (large tanzaku) print of a crescent moon or "Bow-Shaped Moon" from Hiroshige's series "Twenty-eight Views of the Moon" (Tsuki Nijû Hakkei no Uchi) series. The original print was produced around 1832 by the publisher Wakasaya Yoichi (also known as Jakurindo).

The Chinese poem at the top of the print, taken from volume seven of the Toshisen (唐詩選), reads: At dawn, the moon flies for a while behind a thousand trees. Autumn rivers keep it distant from the numerous peaks in the West" (Translation by Matthi Forrer, p.8 of "Hiroshige Prints and Drawings" (London, 1997).

This print is toning and has some slight foxing spots.
