Eibohen, an illustrated anthology of poems written in classical Chinese style, was edited and published by Kumasaka Taishu in 1788. The original illustrations are stamped by Shuhshun and Shukukan. A revised edition with drawings by Tani Buncho was printed around 1792, although this date is a premise of this paper. A detailed semiological comparison of both sets of illustrations, analyzing their elements and composition, reveals contrasts between the two styles. The original drawings faithfully depict the topographical conditions and local activities at the sites, while I can conclude that only three of Buncho's drawings are based on actual sketches. It seems probable that most of the other illustrations by Buncho are skillful composite images influenced by the sense of perspective common in Chinese landscape paintings, whereby he successfully evokes an idealized atmosphere of each place.
