Hiroshige was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist and considered the last great master of that tradition. The prints themselves have been carefully stored and for the most part are near mint or better. The only signs of age MAY be in the form of some slight edge wear from removing and replacing in the envelope but there is nothing of significance and these are ready to frame.
