Ise Monogatari Emaki (Tales of Ise) 1501 - 1599

Like with The Tale Of Genji Monogatari, 源氏物語, the Tales of Ise have been a popular pictorial subject throughout the history of Japanese literature. The Tales of Ise is an anonymous work from 10th century a.d. While the majority of tales are anonymous, some belong to the famous 9th century poet Ariwara no Narihira 在原業平 (825-80), one of the Six Poetic Geniuses *Rokkasen 六歌仙.

The New York Public Library comprises simultaneously a set of scholarly research collections and a network of community libraries, and its intellectual and cultural range is both global and local, while singularly attuned to New York City. That combination lends to the Library an extraordinary richness. It is special also in being historically a privately managed, nonprofit corporation with a public mission, operating with both private and public financing in a century-old, still evolving private-public partnership. Last year, over 16 million New Yorkers visited the library, and over 25 million used its website.

The NYPL Digital Gallery provides free and open access to over 640,000 images digitized from the The New York Public Library's vast collections, including not just photographs but illuminated manuscripts, historical maps, vintage posters, rare prints and more.

Digital projects and partnerships at NYPL are managed by the Digital Experience Group, a 21-person team of programmers, designers and producers dedicated to expanding and enhancing all points of computer and Web-mediated interaction with the library's collections, services and staff.
