Showa period, dated 1928 / Book, typeset on paper

Suzuki and Tosui Imadate's English translation of the Tannishō. After Shinran's (1173-1262) death, his disciples from the Kantō region of Japan became upset with the growing dissent against what they saw as the genuine faith taught by Shinran. One of his immediate disciples, Yuien of Kawawada, Hitachi no Kuni, wrote this work with the intention of clarifying and preserving Shinran's authentic creed.

The above sample was published in 1928 by the Eastern Buddhist Society, an organization founded by Suzuki.
