Miles states, "Fewer then 160 impressions; single edition. The lack of popularity at the time of publication places this delightful portrait among the rarest of the South Seas maidens. - Miles pg. 110-111

Jacoulet was the first artist to depict the people of the South Seas in woodblock prints. The designs were all created from sketches and paintings done between 1929 and 1936. As late as 1959, these early works were being carved to produce new prints. Since many were lost because of World War II bombing of Tokyo, several of them are among the rarest and most desirable of all the artist's oeuvre.
