Epochs of Chinese & Japanese art, an outline history of East Asiatic design by Ernest Fenollosa( Book )
173 editions published between 1907 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 1,816 libraries worldwide
Still regarded as a monumental survey of Eastern art, this comprehensive volume was intended for art collectors and general readers as well as travelers and scholars. It covers China and Korea in addition to Japan, and places a special emphasis on Buddhist influences. Ernest F. Fenollosa (1853 & ndash;1908) was an educator who helped introduce Westerners to traditional Japanese art forms
The classic Noh theatre of Japan by Ernest Fenollosa( Book )
29 editions published between 1959 and 1977 in English and held by 996 libraries worldwide
"Fifteen of the most celebrated plays of the Noh theatre repertory are here given in their entirety, and five more are presented in synopsis. These translations are embedded in a critical discussion of the Noh theatre, its history and place in the court life of Japan, a description of the stage on which it is played, its music, costumes, and masks, and the dance, which usually is the emotional high point in the performance."--
The Chinese written character as a medium for poetry by Ernest Fenollosa( Book )
80 editions published between 1935 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 970 libraries worldwide
First published in 1919 by Ezra Pound, Ernest Fenollosa's essay on the Chinese written language has become one of the most often quoted statements in the history of American poetics. As edited by Pound, it presents a powerful conception of language that continues to shape our poetic and stylistic preferences: the idea that poems consist primarily of images; the idea that the sentence form with active verb mirrors relations of natural force. But previous editions of the essay represent Pound's understanding--it is fair to say, his appropriation--of the text. Fenollosa's manuscripts, in the Beinecke Library of Yale University, allow us to see this essay in a different light, as a document of early, sustained cultural interchange between North Americaand East Asia. Pound's editing of the essay obscured two important features, here restored to view: Fenollosa's encounter with Tendai Buddhism and Buddhist ontology, and his concern with the dimension of sound in Chinese poetry. This book is the definitive critical edition of Fenollosa's important work. After a substantial Introduction, the text as edited by Pound is presented, together with his notes and plates. At the heart of the edition is the first full publication of the essay as Fenollosa wrote it, accompanied by the many diagrams, characters, and notes Fenollosa (and Pound) scrawled on the verso pages. Pound's deletions, insertions, and alterations to Fenollosa's sometimes ornate prose are meticulously captured, enabling readers to follow the quasi-dialogue between Fenollosa and his posthumous editor. Earlier drafts and related talks reveal the developmentof Fenollosa's ideas about culture, poetry, and translation. Copious multilingual annotation is an important feature of the edition. This masterfully edited book will be an essential resource for scholars and poets and a starting point for a renewed discussion of the multiple sources of American modernist poetry

"Noh", or, Accomplishment : a study of the classical stage of Japan by Ernest Fenollosa( Book )
25 editions published between 1916 and 2010 in English and held by 351 libraries worldwide
Presents the history, explains the nuances, and even provides samples of Noh, the first great Japanese theatrical form that developed in the late fourteenth century. Largely responsible for Noh's development were Kannami Kiyotsugu and Zeami Motokiyo, father and son. Kannami combined elements of other Japanese theater with Zen Buddhism to create the form, while Zeami perfected it
Cathay by Ezra Pound( Book )
10 editions published between 1915 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 228 libraries worldwide
"First published in 1915 by Elkin Matthews of London, Cathay, Ezra Pound's early monumental work, originally contained fourteen translations from the Chinese and a translation of the Anglo-Saxon poem "The Seafarer." Over time, these poems have been widely read and loved as both translations and original poetry. In 1916, Cathay was reprinted in the book Lustra without 'the Seafarer' and with four more Chinese poems. Cathay is greatly indebted to the notes of a Harvard-trained scholar Ernest Fenellosa, which were provided to Pound in London in 1913 by Fenellosa's widow Mary. 'In Fenellosa's Chinese poetry materials,' Pound scholar Zhaoming Qian writes, 'Pound discovered a new model that at once mirrored and challenged his developing poetics.' Edited by Qian, this centennial edition reproduces for the first time the text of the original publication plus the poems from Lustra and transcripts of all the relevant Fenollosa notes and Chinese texts. Also included is a new foreword by Ezra Pound's daughter Mary de Rachewiltz, providing an appreciation and fascinating background material on this pivotal work of Pound's oeuvre"
