PREFACE In the preparation of this Album, which forms a Supplement to "Landscape Gardening in Japan," the writer has availed himself of the skillful collaboration of Mr. K. OGAWA, the well-known Japanese Photographic Artist. The original volume, being of a technical and historical character, has been fully illustrated from native works,�a method of illustration in many cases essential to the proper elucidation of the designs, and, at the same time, one which seemed to provide the best means of conveying the true spirit of the ancient art in all its aspects.
