J Noel Chiappa writes:

The situation with this series of prints (many of which are unsigned) is complex; what follows is the best current understanding. The prints in this series seem to be reproductions of prints from two different sources.

Some ( Sumida, Ueno, Goten, Eitai) are re-prints, with an altered title and cartouches, from an earlier series by the same publisher (Sen'ichi), titled 'Edo meisho no uchi', published around 1832-34.

Others (Nippori, Matsuchi, Azuma, Suruga, Kaian, Dōkan) seem to be a group of prints allegedly done by Utagawa Yoshikazu, but which are actually copies of prints from 'three' other 'Tōto meisho' series by Hiroshige: this one, this one; and this one, all originally published by Sanoki. (The 'three' is in 'scare quotes' because they may in fact only be one series, with the later ones being re-issues of the first.)

Yet others (Sumida, Shinobazu) are similarly copies of prints by Hiroshige from yet another series. Whether to call these latter prints 'Hiroshige' prints or 'Yoshikazu' prints is an un-addressed issue.

Version of the Nippori and Shinobazu prints from this series (un-signed, in the ones shown here), with Yoshikazu's signature on it, are known. There is also an Ochanomizu print, showing the same image as that from this series, and a Kameido print, showing the same image as that from this series, signed 'Yoshikazu'; however, no unsigned versions of those two prints are currently known.

So apparently these prints are reproductions - whether authorized, or un-authorized, is not known at this point - although the addition/removal of Yoshikazu's signature suggests that possibly they are un-authorized. It is not clear whether Yoshikazu's signature was added to them after ones were printed with no signature, or whether they were originally printed with his signature, which was later removed when it was noted that they were copies of the earlier ones by Hiroshige.

Note that most (but not all!) of the ones which are the same as the earlier 'Edo meisho no uchi' (published by Sen'ichi) do have a Hiroshige signature; similarly, most (but not all!) of them have the title cartouche on the left, not the right (as the others do).
