Print Series of Ando Hiroshige, in Edward Strange

The 'standard' reference for the work of Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858, sometimes called Ando Hiroshige) is the volume "The Colour Prints of Hiroshige", by Edward F. Strange, Cassell and Company, London, 1925 (since reprinted by Dover).

Unfortunately, while this voluminous work has a most valuable lengthy Appendix which gives descriptions for each individual print in many of Hiroshige's series, it does not provide any sort of useful index into that Appendix! Herewith, then, is a list of where each series is to be found, by page number.

Descriptions are much as given in Strange. After the title is given the publisher(s), then the format, then the date(s) (if known), and finally the page in Strange where the list of prints is to be found. For definitions of such terms as oban, chuban, tateye, and yokoye, the reader is referred to the glossary.
