Hi, all!


It is an unabridged work except for chapter 38 Suzumushi.
Suzumushi? Not that it matters.

Please record it. Oh, I have no link!

The Tale of Genji, by Lady Murasaki, 1925–1933

If the first volume was published in 1925, it'll be PD in 2021. The others, 96 years after publication.

Thanks for your help!
特に1921年~1933年に6巻に分けて出版された『The Tale of Genji』(『源氏物語』)の翻訳者として知られる。
[Especially known as a translator of The Tale of Genji, which was published from 1921 to 1933 in six volumes. (translated by CSCO) 8-) ]

Japanese say the first volume came in 1921. PD or not PD, that is the question.
