Connoisseur's Reports of Calligraphic Treasures


The Institute of Calligraphic Research (Kohitsugaku Kenkyusho), established and run by Century Cultural Foundation Director Dr. Komatsu Shigemi, used to issue certificates of authenticity for some of the ancient calligraphic works that had been brought to the Institute for evaluation. Dr. Komatsu selected and published some of the most important certificates along with their photographs, interpretations and descriptions. The book was published by Obunsha Co., Ltd. between 1987 and 1996. (Please see Japanese page for detail.)
