According to Shimbi Shoin catalogues "Regular" and "De Luxe" editions were issued. No limitation statement indicating the number of the set out of total sets printed or text indicating the edition (Ordinary or De Luxe).

The color woodblock plates are tipped to page and most appear to be printed on silk (versus paper). The black and white collotype plates are printed directly onto the plate. The book has two fold out color plates (78 and 79). These both have three folds out and have tipped on color woodblock prints with image areas over 2 1/2 feet.

The books were issued with a straw textured wrap-around case with ivory type clasps.

Books with this title were issued in this two volume set and later in a one volume set. In a ca 1910 catalogue, the Shimbi Shoin described this publication as a 2 volume set with about 100 plates issued in "Edition de luxe" and "Ordinary Edition." A 1922 catalogue lists the publication as one volume with 58 plates of which 38 were color.

The following artists of the Maruyama School are discussed and their art reproduced: Senrei (Okyo), Mondo (Okyo), Okyo, Rosetsu, Genki, Nangaku, Bummei, Kokei and Tessan.
