Hello Erick,

Many apologies for not responding more speedily to your last post.

I have looked through Rosemary Mercer's Deep Words, which I believe is the only treatment in English. Even with her excellent notes and comments, I can see why he is not read much nowadays. His dates are 1723-1789, whereas those of his much more famous compatriot (Motoori Norinaga) are 1730-1801.

When I have followed up your suggestions about possible connections between Miura Baien & St Bonaventure, I will respond in more detail.

Best wishes,

I will look forward to it.
