25 years of the German-language edition of Kanji & Kana

When the original German-language version of the Handbook and Dictionary of the Japanese Writing System Kanji & Kana was published by Enderle Book Co., Tokyo in 1979, it was not foreseeable that this book would live to see the year 2004. In those times, the number of German students of the Japanese language was so small that nobody could have even thought of a reprint.

Since the Enderle edition was only sold in Japan, the same textbook was published by Langenscheidt for the German market in 1980. This edition has since been revised many times, updated, completely typeset anew, and expanded by a second volume.

There are still a few copies available of the original 1979 Enderle edition. For orders please contact:

(The owner of the small printing office in Tokyo that has been contracted for typesetting and printing vanishes from view, having received 15,000 Deutsch Marks in advance from the author. The already set publishing date for the book 1977 has become doubtful because a new printing office and new financial fundings had to be searched.)
