Notes[edit]

  1. ^ In modern script, this is 浜谷浩: Hamaya and his publishers seem to have used the older character for hama () rather consistently even after the nationwide orthographic reform, but his name is sometimes found written with the simplified character.
  2. ^ According to Hopkinson, on 15 March; according to Mihashi, on 6 March.
  3. ^ Old orthography (then current) for shashinjutsu; in modern form this would be 写真術.
  4. ^ The photographer or publisher's deliberate use of old orthography for henkyō; in modern form this would be 辺境.
  5. ^ Here within CiNii.
  6. ^ The photographer or publisher's deliberate use of old orthography for gakugei; in modern form this would be 学芸.
  7. ^ The photographer or publisher's deliberate use of old orthography for zuisho; in modern form this would be 随処
