Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little book, but not the big book I bought this along with the big catalogue of the Tale of Genji show. After all, it does not add to the catalogue, except in the sense of being more portable. It is a nice substitute for the catalogue if you don't want to spend the money or if you want something lighter in weight.
