Sotheby's refers to this volume as "This set is one of Hokusai's masterpieces." ****

The inscription reads: さア これからこつちのおまつりをわたすばんだ ほたんにたはむれ しゝのきよくどり このこけなめらかなところが とふもいへねへ しかしあせつくせへにほひ みちられちやア たいへんりきんのさねかしら つけやくじれやぼうたんぼう しよじぼのことだ わたいはおまつりだから明神さまをだしにつかつてよふ/\のことできたものを おんなにしやれるとさせねへよ ヲイ あやまつて半日もせめてこうしてゐてへ おもひなしか おめへもおれもはないきが しゝににてくる やつきようがうのじせつもいまいくほどにといつてくんねへな

The transliteration reads: Saa korekara kocchi no omatsuri wo watasu banda. Botan ni tawamure shishi no kyokudori kono koke namerakana tokoro ga doumo ienee.
