In 1975, 18 top professionals were asked to write and comment on selected games played by the greatest classical players in the history of Japanese go. With one volume commented by each pro, this set covers 400 years of classical Japanese go history from Sansa to Shusai. The detailed explanation helps the reader to understand the ancient games with the perspective of modern go theory. A great series which has been out of print for many years.

Each volume is around 250 to 300 pages.

Normally each cloth-bound volume comes with a protective case, but unfortunately I was only able to collect a set without the cases. Still a great set to own.
