Jinzanshū
(Tani Shigetō)
This is a collection of Chinese poetry in forty-nine volumes written by Tani Jinzan (Shigetoo), a mid-Edo period follower of Suika Shintō; it was compiled by his son, Kakimori, and completed in 1728. The work is divided into eleven sections: poetry, writings, miscellany, prefaces, topics and extracts, diaries, records, celebratory words, epitaphs, liturgies (norito), saimon (ritual words), and genealogy. This work provides basic material to get a glimpse into the thinking of Jinzan. There are fragments of a handwritten manuscript of this work in Jinzan yuikō, in the Yamauchi archives of the Kōchi Prefectural library. Included in Jinzanshū (Tani Tateki, ed. 1880).
