Further bibliographical data and descriptions of these items may be found in the list which follows these introductory paragraphs. It will be noted that the above-mentioned works cover only bibliographical writings published prior to For similar coverage of later publications in this field, the student will be obliged to consult a number of sources. The most complete listings will be found in the annual editions of the better publishers' yearbooks See Entries 57 or in the several publications of the National Diet Library Kokuritsu Kokkai Toshokan listed as Entries 51 to The former are sometimes more convenient to use, although apt to be less comprehensive.
The writers recommend the bibliographical sections of Entries 59, 60, and 62, as well as the occasional notes in such bibliophilic or bibliographic journals as the Dokusho shimbun, Nihon dokusho shimbun, or Tosho shimbun Entries 11, 34, and 43, respectively. More selective and specialized lists devoted to the bibliography of bibliographies may be found in works by Hatano and Yayoshi, Honjo, and Kurita Entries 14, 16, and In general, however, the more specialized literature in this field frequently appears in periodicals or other sources which are rare and difficult to find even in Japan.
The most definitive of recent works in this field by one of Japan's most reputable bibliographical scholars. It covers all bibliographical literature from ancient times to December 31, in two major parts: 1 works published prior to the Restoration , and 2 works published since the Restoration. The second part is divided into three sections, the first of which covers such general bibliographical works as bibliographies of bibliographies, general indexes, bibliographies of reference works, of series, of rare books, of proscribed books, of lost or destroyed works, of official publications, of magazine and newspaper indexes, of library catalogues, of Occidental studies of Japan, and of other classes too numerous for mention.
The second and principal section treats of specialized bibliographies in eighteen fields, including political science, law, administration, history, philosophy, social studies, economics, finance, statistics, sociology, education, folk-lore, military science, physical sciences, arts and crafts, industry, fine arts, language, linguistics, and literature.
The concluding section comprises a supplement to this with similarly arranged entries.
It is unfortunate that the two were not integrated. There are both subject and author indexes. Bibliographic style of entries varies considerably, and important details are frequently lacking. There is little annotation. Nevertheless, this work is an unusually complete and useful account of Japanese bibliographical literature. It should not be confused with a series of articles by the same author entitled "Ishin irai hompo shomoku no shomoku, which is more restricted in coverage.
An outstanding bibliographical essay by an eminent member of the Ecole Francaise de l'Extreme Orient. The author's interest centers on pre-Restoration bibliographies in the fields of history, religion, and literature, but his sections on general indexes and catalogues and on the bibliography of post-Restoration law and economics should be of very considerable value to the political scientist. The essay is divided into nine major.

An appendix treats the bibliography of more specialized subjects, e. Sections 1 and 4 are outstanding, as is the treatment of the major bibliographies of economic and agricultural subjects in section 6. The treatment of post-Restoration politics is relatively weak and the general inadequacy of the bibliographical citations annoying.

Its usefulness to political scientists resides in its occasional surveys of current bibliographical literature.
General Bibliographies The phrase "general bibliographies" is used somewhat loosely in the present work to designate books, articles, catalogues, or checklists too broad in coverage to permit their inclusion in any of the eight specialized bibliographic categories listed under Section 3. In general this means that they treat the bibliography of more than one specific field within the discipline of political science. Specific fields have been narrowly defined so that bibliographies of Japanese law, for example, are regarded as covering several specific political science fields and have, therefore, been categorized as general.
Within this context it has been possible to distinguish some five subtypes of general bibliographies. These are listed and described under subsections a to e below. General The student of Japanese government and politics is particularly fortunate with respect to this category. There exist several really first-rate general bibliographies of Japanese reference books and research materials.
At least four of these merit special notice more detailed descriptions are provided in the entries proper. All save the last are extensively annotated and especially useful on that account. The most general in its coverage, and probably the best for the prewar period, is a monumental work by Hatano Ken'ichi and Yayoshi Mitsunaga entitled Kenkyu chosa sanko bunken soran General survey of reference works for study and research. It is classified, covers the literature of all principal fields in political science in accurate and reliable fashion, and is well indexed and simple to use. The writers recommend it highly.
Less general in scope but more intensive in its treatment is Kurita Motoji's Sogo kokushi kenkyu General guide for research in Japanese history. Professor Kurita's emphasis was primarily on historical literature, but so broadly interpreted as to include numerous fields and subjects of direct interest to the political scientist. The sections on political history and biography and on such general research tools as dictionaries, encyclopedias, bibliographies, catalogues, and chronologies are especially good for items published prior to Professor Honj6 Eijiro's three-volume Nihon keizaishi bunken Bibliography of Japanese economic history should also be mentioned.
This contains major sections on political, legal, and social as well as economic matters. The first volume covers items published prior to while the other two carry the coverage up to Finally, for postwar publications only, the student should be familiar with a two-volume publication of the Horitsu Jiho Henshubu entitled Sengo hogaku bunken somokuroku A general bibliography of postwar legal materials. This is the single most satisfactory guide to Japanese legal and political writings published during the period from August to the end of with which the writers are familiar.

For further information on these four items, see Entries 14, 29, 16, and In addition to the works already mentioned, there are several others of sufficient quality and usefulness to merit special notice. The best of these is a two-volume classified but unannotated bibliography entitled Keizai horitsu bunken mokuroku Catalogue of economic and legal literature compiled by the Kobe Koto Shogyogakko Shogy6 Kenkyujo. It affords a more complete coverage of books, pamphlets, and important articles in all fields of political science appearing from to than does any other single source.

Kuroita Katsumi's Kokushi no kenkyu also includes extensive lists of important Japanese historical works and excellent essays on the scope and methodology of the social sciences. There exists further a general classified bibliography of the literature of the Meiji era entitled Meiji bunken mokuroku by Takaichi Yoshio which is most useful. See Entries 26, 30, and 41, respectively.

In the somewhat more specialized field of legal literature,mention should be made of three other bibliographical sources of outstanding merit. The first is a regular section of the Horitsu nenkan Yearbook of law entitled "H6ritsu chosho ichiran Survey of legal publications. The second is a lengthy article in the Bulletin de la Maison Franco-Japonaise, "Bibliographie des principaux ouvrages juridiques edites dans l'empire japonais.
The last is a work written by an eminent group of legal specialists at Tokyo University entitled Hogaku kenky5 no shiori Guide to the study of law published in This is a broad introduction to both the literature and major issues in all fields of Japanese public and private law. It provides an excellent orientation in these subjects.
For further information see Entries 17, 9, and 25, respectively. There also exist a number of weekly newspapers and other periodical publications which specialize in news about new publications of all types and in all fields. Three of the best known are described below See Entries 11, 34, and Titles and publishers undergo not infrequent changes in this field. Finally, it should be noted that most of the professional journals and so-called "general magazines sog6 zasshi " contain regular review and new literature sections which are of considerable bibliographical importance.
Such journals are listed and described in Chapter III below. A new but related undertaking of general bibliographical use is the Nihon shohyo kaidai sakuin gepp5 See Entry 35 , a monthly book review index which first appeared in March This provides a further and useful approach to the general bibliography of this field.
A highly selective but excellent list of outstanding works in the major fields of Japanese law. Attention is focused on monographs and books published between and January 1, Works published prior to are cited only if considered to be of "living" value or to comprise an important evolutionary stage in the development of modern legal doctrine.

Annotations are few. This article comprises supplement no. Volumes 22, 23, 34, 35, and 36 of this famous encyclopedia are collectively entitled An annotated bibliography of the works of famous thinkers. The extensive entries in the first four of these volumes, however, refer only to the works of non-Japanese philosophers, political scientists, economists, lawyers, etc. Volume 36 includes Japanese works as well, but only in the fields of religion, philosophy, and literature.
The separate index volume to the set includes a good classified list of Japanese reference books. One of three major weekly newspapers devoted largely to brief reviews of current publications. See also Entries 34 and This unannotated list is the result of a Washington Documents Center request that SCAP direct the Japanese Government to have compiled a list of about twenty basic books in each of fifty specified fields.
It should be noted that, although each section was compiled by a Japanese expert, the selection in the above noted fields is highly arbitrary and tends to list older works and editions which have long since been superseded by more definitive treatments. The bibliographical citations are often seriously incomplete. This journal is not to be confused with another of identical title published from on by the Seinen Toshokan'in Remmei See Entry Copies have not been available for examination.
A monumental annotated bibliography of Japanese reference works in all fields published from ancient times to Undoubtedly the most valuable single work in this field for the student of post-Restoration Japan.
