Note: This lithograph is a reissue of the 1954 Ota woodblock print of the
same actor (under his prior name of Ichikawa Ebiz IX) in the same role
at the Kabuki-za in March 1953.  It appears designed to commemorate his
two month shmei at the Kabuki-za in 1962.  He reprised the role at
the Kabuki-za in October 1964.
