BD. Edmund Blunden

149. [Blunden]. ‘Legends from Japan’. Review of Folktales of Japan, edited by Keigo Seki. TLS, 20 February 1964, p. 151.

Seki’s volume would better benefit English readers, Blunden believes, if it were illustrated, with ukiyoe by Hiroshige (Ap) for example. Blunden’s own comments about Japanese folklore are knowledgeable, and include reference to Mitford’s Tales (see D4) and related writing by Hearn (see D9a).
