The expository writings are reprinted from the following publications. (All copyrights belong to their respective author.)
In principle, the captions are the same as the original captions written on the same page as the plates. However, if caption was provided separately from the plate in the original, e.g., caption provided in list of works on the first page or at the end of the material, we transcribed it to attach to the plate.
We transcribed the captions textually including apparent mistakes. If the original caption was written in more than two languages, we omitted Greek, Russian, Dutch, etc.
Some of the captions may contain infelicitous or discriminatory expressions. Please note that although we attempted to avoid those expressions as much as possible in making the translation into Japanese, we had to left some of those expressions to convey the nuances of the originals in some cases.
We transcribed the artist’s names written on the same page as the plates in the original, but omitted their roles such as painter of the original drawing, engraver, printmaker, etc.
