Sesshu exhibit

Before my previous webhost went belly up and spiked my site, I had a review of a 500th anniversary Sesshu exhibit at the National Museum here in Kyoto. I still have a few pictures.

    Hi..I have a copy of Sesshu’s Long Scroll “A Zen Landscape Journey”. It is quite a marvelous book. It is 4″W by 5+1/2″L, it is only 1/2″ thick, but amazingly opens to reveal the entire scroll at 14′!! First printing was in 1959, I believe this to be the sixth printing done in 1968. It is in beautiful shape, near mint I would say. In light of the 500th Anniversay of the Sesshu Exhibit, I was wondering if you or anyone you know would be interested in this piece? Peace…Theresa

    Hello, I came across a copy of Sesshu’s Long Scroll, third printing, 1960. It has a wooden cover that I have never seen nor heard described before. Is it unusual? Thanks

    It is to enjoy, not to sell. Keep it, I command you.

    I too have a sort of ‘boxed’ reproduction of the Long Scroll of Landscape. It has ivory (plastic?) clips securing the box and a label inside the box in Japanese (Chinese?).

    The scroll opens out to about 12 metres and is in superb condition.

    I have pictures if anyone is interested.

    I also have a long scroll that is in a black cardboard box & it has a green pamphlet inside that explains the scroll & a little bit about Sesshu. It also says it was “owned by Hofu Mori Hokokai”. I would like to know more about this “limited series”… how many were printed & what year mine was printed in? How much is it worth in near mint condition (although I am not even remotely interested in selling it)? Can a person still buy Sesshu reproductions & where? Is this “long scroll” still being sold anywhere?
    I may be asking these questions in the wrong place but this was the only “discussion” I could find regarding Sesshu’s Long Scroll. I hope you can help me but if not I’m sorry to have bothered you. I have photos if you’d like me to e-mail.

    Dear Greg: I have a copy of Sesshu’s Long Scroll. It is a small book with wooden covers and the entire scroll folds out…almost more than the length of my living room! It is a 3rd printing, done in 1960. The photos from the book were supplied by the National Museum of Tokyo, Published by Charles E. Tuttle Company of Rutland, Vermont & Tokyo Japan. Letterpress printing by Kenkyusha; Gravure printing by Inshokan, and binding by Okamoro Bindery, all in Tokyo,Japan.

    Can you tell me anything about this book? You may email me at either/both of the above addresses. Hope to hear from you in the near future. (I live in Hawaii on the Big Island, city of Hilo.)

    Cheryl Crain, did you come by the scroll when you were on R&R from Truk back in the 70′s? See my entry on reunions site. I’ve been trying to get in touch.
