One Hundred Famous Views of Edo (Wikipedia) has more information on each print including its location, publication date and title in Kanji.

The ordering of the prints: sources give two different orders for the summer prints; an explanation is given here by Wikipedia.

The main order used in the table is according to (Trede, Melanie; Bichler, Lorenz (2010). One Hundred Famous Views of Edo. Cologne: Taschen) and follows by reading the fan-shaped box for summer on the table of contents print in the way of "scattered writing" (chirashigaki), i.e. by grouping the titles in sets of three. The alternative order given in parentheses is generally found in early 20th century sources and follows by reading the fan shaped-box for the summer titles in the normal way, i.e. (vertical) line by line.

Cartouches: vertical rectangular cartouche upper right contains the series title on a red ground; the square cartouche upper right contains the title of the individual print; the artist's signature (Hiroshige-ga) normally appears in a vertical cartouche on a red ground in the lower left although some are on the right and three have a yellow ground.

Seals: the seal of the publisher appears outside the lower left margin of each print; censor's seals appear mostly in the upper right margin but sometimes in the lower left. Because they have been trimmed, the seals aren't visible on the set of prints displayed here. Here is a copy of print 100 Nihonbashi Embankment with margins complete.

The system of censorship of all prints offered for public sale required the submission of the artist's finished design to the censor. The censor would mark his approval by impressing two seals on the design, one of which showed the date (year and month). The design was then carved and printed. In 1858 the system changed and only one censor seal appeared, always in the lower left.

The circumstances surrounding the print are not clear but it seems likely that the blocks for the original print were damaged or lost.
