During the occupation, at the request of General Douglas MacArthur, he was recruited by Commandant Charles McDowell to work at the Tokyo Army College.  MacArthur would join Greta Garbo, Pope Pius XII and Queen Elizabeth II, as a prominent collector of Jacoulet's work.   The carver and printer for this 1940 print was Maeda and Honda, respectively.  It was limited to 350 prints.  This print is sealed and signed by Jacoulet in the body of the print.  It is in very good condition with a couple of faint spots and just mild generalized toning.  P80037
