Remarques & avis / Review — This beautiful volume is dedicated to Kyogen, an old form of comical Japanese theater. One hundred (contrarily to what the title states, only 98, apologizes the author ; ) plays are presented (historical context, story, &c.) and superbly illustrated by Sosei KUZUNISHI's numerous photogravured photographs. A special mention for the splendid dj.

Mention spéciale pour la superbe jaquette.
