Description: This is one print from Mizuno Toshikata's famous "Selection of Thirty-six Beauties" (or "Thirty-six Elegant Selections") series. Each print in this series had a title denoting the period in which the scene was set, and a beautiful woman in the costume of that era. This particular print, the 13th in the series, is set in the Kyōhō era (1716-36), and shows some women on an excursion to the mountains.
There is some beautiful leaf-patterned blind-embossing to the title box, and several black sections of the print, including the women's hair, an obi, and a tray, have shōmenzuri (tsuyazumi) burnishing, giving them a shiny and luxurious look.
There are some stains to the lower section of the print and one to the right margin.
