Ancient appendix (追加) of a dictionary of Chinese characters (first edition) - "Inkyō jishi retsui" - Published by Yamaguchi Mohei - Japan - 1699

This rare item is a Japanese dictionary of Kanji characters from the Edo period, dated 1699. (See photos for the publication and date)

The inkyō (Chinese: Yunjing), literally translated as "Mirror of Rhymes" are ancient dictionaries sorted by 'rhyme' or phonetic reading of Chinese characters.

The book was printed on mulberry paper using wooden moulds. A text of great value for any researcher, scholar or historian who needs a dictionary of old Japanese Kanji characters.

The Japanese Kanji characters changed over the centuries from the original Chinese base. A consequence of this is that the Japanese have difficulty reading documents written before the end of the 19th century.

27 x 19 cm

90 pages

String binding.
All of the interior pages are in good condition, with the exception of some damage caused by insects in the lower right corner, and around six pages with a darker colour.

    Bestelling laat gekregen. Waarschijnlijk de schuld van het Italiaanse postbedrijf.
