Other states and editions of this design exist in the collections of the Boston MFA (2000.424a–c) and the National Gallery of Australia (NGA 94.1245.A-C). While none of these, including the Mead's impression, maintain their publisher's seals, the attribution has been made based on auction records of untrimmed examples and Elizabeth de Sabato Swinton's "In Battle's Light: Woodblock Prints of Japan's Early Modern Wars" (Worcester Art Museum, 1991: cat. no. 27). - BB, 2014
