Inscribed on the title page: TSUDA - MANUSCRIPT, In der Mannstaedt Übersetzung. Englisches Original aus dem Jahre 1908. Im Auftrag von Heinz Kress übertragen nach einer maschinengeschriebenen Kopie der deutschen Übersetzung im Jahre 1986. [Tsuda Manuscript, translated by Mannstaedt. After an English original from 1908. Transcribed from a type-written copy of the German translation in 1986 on behalf of Heinz Kress.] Karl Mannstaedt (dates unknown), who was employed before the II. World War by the German collector Dr. Kurt Herberts, made a type-written translation into German from a hand written English original. The various styles of writing in the manuscript indicate that it was dictated by Tsuda to a number of scribes. In the type-written translation the kanji for most technical terms and names were transcribed from the English original. A total of three hand written copies of the Tsuda Manuscript are known to exist today, but each contains minor variations of the text:
- One Tsuda Manuscript is owned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, N.Y.
- Another one is owned by the University of Bonn, Germany, Japanologisches Seminar.
- The third hand written copy in the English language, as well as Mannstaedt’s typed translation into the German language, are in the collection of Heinz and Else Kress, Finland. (see: inrô-shita-e, Design Drawings from a Japanese Lacquer Workshop, Select Bibliography, p. 353).
