- Curator's comments
- '272. There is a poor copy of this Makimono in the Imperial Museum at Tokyo. I also have a finer and earlier Makimono of the same subject. There is also one at the museum in Kyoto poor than this [?]. These Makimono differ in much detail.' 'a Chester Beatty Dat 1917' (unattributed annotation in the specially interleaved Japanese Study Room copy of Anderson 1886)
