"Twelve Months of Kyoto", Kyoto, Uchida Wood Block Printing Co., LTD, undated but ca. 1960, folio of twelve woodblock prints in a wrap-around presentation folder. Each woodblock print is tipped to plate and that is framed by a thin mat which is tipped at the right or left on the plate. The plate size is 13 1/2 x 15 in (34 x 38 cm). The image area of the woodblock print is 9 3/4 x 11 in (25 x 28 cm). Each plate is numbered from 1 to 12 on the back.

The twelve plates are numbered titled on a information sheet found inside the top flap of presentation folder.

1. January: Snow Scene at the Byodoin Temple at Uji.
2. February: The annual festival of the Fushimi Inari.
3. March: Plum blossoms at the Kitano Shrine.
4. April: Arashiyama Park, a famous scenic resort.

The folio is not dated. I have seen it dated between 1930 and 1950. I believe the folio is from the late 1950s or early 1960s.
