Yakusha Hyobanki is a book of art reviews of Kabuki actors that has been published continuously for about 200 years from the mid-17th century and is an important resource for the study of Edo culture, including early modern theater, ukiyo-e, literature, language and publishing.
This collection, which transliterates the Yakusha Hyobanki based on a strict revision, has made a significant contribution to the progress of Kabuki research.
The third period continues to follow the principle of the second period and includes about 110 works from the An'ei era to the Kyouwa era.
The first volume, published earlier, covers the years from An'ei 2 to 4 and the second volume covers the years from An'ei 5 to 7.
