I am deferring to Robinsonĺs precedent by listing this as a series, even though only a single design is known.á This print is about 14 by 10 inches (36 by 25 centimeters), a size known as ˘ban.

 

Scene: The loyal farmer Shiradayű (百姓白太夫) weeping as he holds up a tray bearing an unsheathed sword

Robinson: S41.1

ôRobinsonö refers to listing in Kuniyoshi: The Warrior-Prints by Basil William Robinson (Cornell University Press, Ithaca, NY, 1982) and its privately published supplement.
