The e-text was proofread and tagged by Sachiko Iwabuchi, Research Specialist for the Japanese Text Initiative, and by Christine Ruotolo of the E-Text Center. Preparation of the header and further checking was done by Christine Ruotolo, who also developed the Web form display for the text.

The background for this edition is an image of handmade kozo paper by Timothy Barrett, author of Japanese Papermaking (New York: Weatherhill, 1992), in the collection of the Book Arts Press at the University of Virginia.
