Although this publisher did not start his business until the mid-1840s he soon "became one of the most productive..." In fact, "His flourishing business allowed him to take over the business of the publisher Kawaguchiya Shōzō in the fourth month of 1852." [See Kawaguchi-ya Shōzō on our K thru M publishers page.] Source and quotes from: Japanese Woodblock Prints: Artists, Publishers and Masterworks 1680-1900, by Andreas Marks, p. 290.

Dr. Marks notes: "As early as 1832, Ebiya Rinnosuke was in business as a fan merchant, issuing fan prints." In the 1840s they were printing standard oban sized prints mainly by Kuniyoshi and Kunisada. By 1851 "We know that... he was situated in the same shop as his fellow publisher Enshūya Matabei. An earlier address for Ebiya is not known and he might have actually joined the established Enshūya when he had started his business. Already in 1845, both publishers were engaged in two co-operational projects..." working with Kuniyoshi, Hiroshige and Kunisada. "Sealed as Ueki Rinnosuke since 1876, Ebiya was in business until c. 1895, however not exceedingly active." Quoted from: Japanese Woodblock Prints: Artists, Publishers and Masterworks 1680-1900, p. 280.

"Fujiokaya Keijirō is one of the few publishers about whom detailed information is available. The reason for this lies in the family records published by his successors. [¶] Fujiokaya Keijirō I (1823-1883) was the younger brother of the publisher Fujiokaya Hikotarō. [See the publisher's entry above this one.] Fujiokaya Keijirō started in the publishing business around 1843 with warrior prints by Kuniyoshi.... He managed to get all three leading Utagawa artists working for him from the start and they designed prints as well as book illustrations." The business under the leadership was Keijirō IV was destroyed in the Great Kantō quake of September 1, 1923.
