This set of two folding-albums comprises a collection of calligraphies and paintings produced by Japanese artists over a long span of time. Those whose works are represented in the albums were all deeply interested in Chinese culture. They were especially attracted to the idea they found in Chinese society of a community of educated friends who shared works in prose, poetry, and painting among one another through correspondence or gatherings. The covers of both albums are inscribed and sealed by an individual who assembled their contents for posterity.
