Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Wakan Sansai Zue (å’Œæ¼¢ä¸‰æ‰å›³ä¼š?, lit. Illustrated Sino-Japanese Encyclopedia") is a Japanese encyclopedia published in 1712 in the Edo period. It consists of 105 volumes in 81 books. Its compiler was Terashima or Terajima (Terajima RyÅan (å¯ºå³¶è‰¯å®‰?)), a doctor from Osaka. It describes and illustrates various activities of daily life, such as carpentry and fishing, as well as plants and animals, and constellations. As seen from the title of the book (å’Œ (wa), which means Japan and æ¼¢ (kan), which means China), Terajima''s idea was based on a Chinese encyclopedia of the Ming times, namely Sancai Tuhui ("Pictorial..." or "Illustrated Compendium of the Three Powers") by Wang Qi (1607), known in Japan as the Sansai Zue (ä¸‰æ‰å›³ä¼š?). Reproductions of the Wakan Sansai Zue are still in print in Japan. "
