Remarks
The actual edition size of Ishukankokai reproductions is unknown, however, it was probably approx 2000. The first of these reproductions was an edition of 100 and is identified by a shiny silver inner folder. Then followed a numbered edition of 450, a "first print" numbered edition of 750, and finally an un-numbered open edition, all of which had a beige inner folder.
