A MONTHLY JOURNAL OF ORIENTAL ART
To lovers of Oriental Art the Kokka needs no special introduction. Ever since it was first issued in 1889, the Kokka has been welcomed by connoisseurs and all students of Eastern Art as an indispensable guide and work of reference. The Kokka is a veritable gallery of photographs of choice relics, for whatever is most captivating and appraised among the treasures of Oriental Art, in the collections of distinguished families and temples, and otherwise sealed to the public, enriches the pages of this journal. As to the intrinsic worth of the Kokka no better testimonial can be given than the fact that it was awarded a medal for specific merit at the Columbian Exhibition in Chicago, U. S. A., in 1894, and a Grand Prix at the Paris Exhibition in 1900.
To meet the long-felt want of our foreign readers, an English edition has been published, commencing with No. 133. In this special edition the English explanations of plates are prepared by Professor Suteta Takashima, of the Tokyo Higher Commercial School, and revised by Professor John T. Swift, of the Tokyo Higher Normal School.
We hope to make further improvements from time to time, to meet every requirement of our readers, and trust that the intrinsic merit and value of the journal may result in a wider circulation abroad.
