Japan Chibbett, David. The History of Japanese Printing and Book Illustration.1977. Pages 13-28. The first book in English that addresses the history of Japanese printing. Chibbett was actually a librarian at the British Library; he unfortunately died at the age of 32 in the same year 1977 as this book, his first, was finally published. As the title indicates, the bulk of the book is about print culture, but the pages listed above treat manuscripts in outline. Hillier, Jack. The Art of the Japanese Book. 2 vols. 1988. I actually hesitate to put this book on the list. Hillier was a cataloguer of Japanese prints at Sotheby's, and his conviction was that Japan was unique in that its print culture of books proved primarily determinative of its art. Thus, Hillier deliberately chooses not to treat manuscripts as part of the "Japanese book." I include this here as an interesting polemical view (of course, it will be useful later on for Japan as we move to discussing print). Kornicki, Peter Francis. The Book in Japan. 1998. Chapter 3, "Manuscript Culture," is the best outline available in English. LaMarre, Thomas. Uncovering Heian Japan: An Archaeology of Sensation and Inscription. 2000. Look at Pt. 2 "Inscription and Sensation" (77-139). LaMarre is a bit of a chameleon, starting out as a scholar of premodern Japanese literature but now doing primarily film and media studies (in this sense, his trajectory parallels that of Harvard's own Tomiko Yoda). His primary referent is Deleuze, but within our context, one could say he parallels D.F. McKenzie in the contention that every element of form and material bears upon the interpretation of the symbolic meanings of a "text." As far as I know, LaMarre was the first (within the Japanese literature field), to use questions of brush, calligraphic style, paper type and design, etc. to read Japanese court poetry. The section I cite gives a good sense of his material hermeneutics.

Bourdieu applied to Heian Japan. Ratcliff is interested in scribes, scribal culture, and the way in which cultural refinement expressed through writing, especially poetic exchanges, formed a distinct cultural politics of legitimacy within the "field" that was Heian court society.
