part 2: works dating between 1600-1856

Under construction. I have not had time to work on this for some months, but would welcome help!

I plan to add links to downloadable files. For the moment see:

  • Fukui Univ. (classical text files)
  • Kikuchi Shin'chi's list
  • Frequently mentioned works (e.g. Keene, Anthology) are cited in abbreviated form as are titles of some journals and series (e.g. MN for Monumenta Nipponica). See introductory page for other abbreviations.

    Version without kanji. For version with Japanese titles see
