Note
  • The preface by the author is dated 1844. The book itself, however, is dated the seventh year of Kae̕i (1854). Kokusho sōmokuroku also mentions its date of publication as 1854, but says it was the first year of Ansei. 1854 was a year in which one emperor died and another came to the throne. As such, there could have been two editions of this work published in 1854. If so, BYU's copy could be te earlier edition which is not mentioned in Kokusho sōmokuroku and could therefore be unknown.
  • Bound in tradtional, Japanese, side-sewn, tan, paper; title labels on upper covers.
