This page is for viewing images of the original Kiritsubo, Suma, and Kashiwagi chapters of the Tale of Genji manuscript (LC Control No.:2008427768), held by the Asian Division, Library of Congress. We use original images provided by the Library of Congress.
Clicking on the images below will display the original images in a new window (overlap mode). In the overlap mode, a transliteration of the text can be superimposed over the original images. Moreover, in line-up mode, the original images and the transliteration can be displayed side-by-side. We use ContentsView FLEX for displaying the images.
The images are not identified by folio number or recto/verso but by serial number (image number) from the cover.
For example, Kiritsubo fol. 1r is 0005.
