Description
Chinese Neo Confucian Scholar Shao Yong (1011-1077) Work attributed to Tomioka Tessai (1837-1924), with an 11 column inscription of a question & answer between the fisherman & woodcutter. This series of conversations derives from the works of the Chinese Northern Song scholar-philosopher Shao Yong; but the passage cited here is spurious. See Nanga Catalogue.
