The Chikuma Shobo Publishing Company in Japan has announced the March 22, 2019 publication of a Japanese language volume containing the most detailed ever chronological account of the life and times of the father of Japanese folklore studies Yanagita Kunio (1875-1962)

 

This volume, which can be read and enjoyed on its own terms, goes far beyond the conventional chronological accounts of Yanagita’s life and attempts to present a new image and understanding of the character and personality of the man and his times.I hope,as the editor of this volume ,that his exceptionally detailed account of  Yanagita’s life will stimulate new thinking about Yanagita and lead to fresh research into Yanagita’s writings and career.

Over the years, several collections of Yanagita’s Japanese writings have been published by Chikuma Shobo publishers. The major sets were as follows: In 1962, Chikuma Shobo issued the “Standard Edition” of Yanagita Kunio 『定本柳田國男集』, which contained 31 main and 5 supplementary volumes. This collection did not include Yanagita’s personal papers, literary writings or diaries. In 1978-1979, Chikuma published a 12 volume collection of representative and easier to read “New” Yanagita books『新編 柳田国男集』. Between 1989 and 1991 they published the 32 volume set『柳田国男全集』 In 1997, Chikuma Shobo started publishing a “Definitive Collection” of Yanagita’s works『柳田國男全集』 Volumes 1 through 35 have already been published. Volumes 1 through 21 contain 92 volumes of Yanagita’s books. Volume 22 contains works that Yanagita edited. Volumes 23 to 33 contain Yanagita’s essays and articles. Volumes 34 and 35 contain Yanagita’s unpublished drafts and materials published after his death (1962-2015). Yanagita’s foreign language publications are not be included.

Four supplementary volumes別巻 bekkan to the collection are scheduled be published.
