of complete lithograph

This lithograph features the typical middle class dress of the Okinawans. Dress of the young and old is depicted. A stone bridge is in the background.

I have recorded two different versions of the picture in this lithograph. I call this one Type II. To see the differences between Type I and II, click here.

The lettering reads:

  • Dag and drawn by E. Brown, Jr Land by Heine

  • Ackerman Lith., 379 Broadway, N.Y.


Very clean. Margin appears to have been trimmed.

Paper thickness is 8.7mm.

Numerous differences between large and medium. Foreground is different color and different shading. Bridge in background has no visible upper surface (walkway) in the large but a large white walkway in the medium. Man to left has open eyes in large and closed eyes in the medium. Clearly different renderings of the drawing.
