Note The Tōshisen ehon has seven series and each series has a number of separate volumes (books). There is a total of thirty-five volumes in the Tōshisen ehon series. This book is the last of the five volumes in the series Shichigon zekku from Tōshisen ehon (唐詩選畫本), published by Shinbē Kobayashi in 1790. Each of the volumes is dedicated to a topic or a motif. All the poems are written in Kanji (Japanese adopted Chinese characters), as the poems were originally Chinese texts. By the Kanji, there are hiragana (Japanese symbols) used to indicate the Japanese pronunciation. Each poem is accompanied with an illustration and an explanation in Japanese.
