This paper will first consider general bibliographic aspects of the Meishu Congshu. Then it will consider the historical meaning of this pervasive publication through only one publisher in times of massive political, economic, social, and cultural change as it pushed to the forefront the European concept "fine arts" and the Japanese translated term "bijutsu" that includes paintings, sculpture, craft and architecture -- a concept that had not existed in Asia prior to the modern era.
