Printing Landmarks: Popular Geography and Meisho Zue in Late Tokugawa Japan by Robert Goree (review)

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Printing Landmarks is persuasive in arguing that meisho zue formed "one of the most popular, distinctive, and enduring book genres of the Tokugawa era" (p. 2). It makes us wonder which other early modern primary sources are often used but poorly understood. This monograph is therefore a valuable addition to the understanding of early modern publishing culture and geographical imagination.
