The Title "Netsuke 7" is an allusion to the seven collections that are at the core of this study.

The book is divided into chapters, each dedicated to one school; the chapeters themselves are subdivided by subjects: FAUNA, FLORA, HUMAN and LEGEND, OBJECTS and MASKS.

Each netsuke's picture is accompanied by a very short notice describing it, the pictures are far more explicit than words!
There is a list of all the artists who carved the subjects illustrated (specified in invory or wood).and on the left-hand side of each page there is a column recapitulating the numbers of pieces in each collection.
