Yomiuri Shimbun Looks at Origin of Manga

The Daily Yomiuri comes an article titled "THROUGH OTAKU EYES / Don't hop to conclusions about manga's scroll 'origins'," which takes a brief look at the early history of Japanese manga:

In 1924, Yuzankaku Press published Nippon Manga-shi by illustrator and manga creator Seiki Hosokibara (1885-1958). In the book, Hosokibara "discovered" that another national treasure scroll, titled "Shigisan Engi Emaki," was the actual "origin" of manga.
