"Genji's World in Japanese Woodblock Prints from the Paulette and Jack Lantz collections by Andreas Marks and contributors offers the most comprehensive survey of these Genji prints to-date. (...) The generous provision of Genji prints in this book makes this by-way of ukiyo-e, this remarkable publishing phenomenon, accessible to scholars and collectors as never before."
