Sekien's original books photo-reproduced with translated text and explanatory notes.

These encyclopedias from the 1700s are still highly influential in yokai lore, but haven't been translated until now. While certainly worth the read, the translation/annotations, though thorough, sometimes feel a bit j complete at the same time. Still, if you're like me and are serious about researching yokai lore and history, this is a must-buy.
