Known Tokyo nichinichi shinbun (TNS) prints

Some 115 prints are now associated with the Tokyo nichinichi shinbun series of news nishikie -- counting the promotional flyer (TNS-0), both variations of the Taiwan Expedition ghost story (851o, 851r), and a retitled edition of one of the unnumbered triptychs (9003o, 9003r).

Tsuchiya 1995 lists 111 prints. The table does not differentiate TNS-851o and TNS-851r, does not include TNS-9005 and TNS-9006, or make reference to TNS-9003r.

Tsuchiya 2000 (Bunsei Shoin CD-ROM) accounts for 114 prints -- all except 9003r. The image list includes both editions of TNS-851, as well as TNS-9005 and TNS-9006. There is no image of TNS-9004, but it is listed in the table, and the file numbering scheme of the database leaves room for this print as TNN9004.

Chiba 2008 lists 115 prints, including a retitled edition of TNS-9003. The retitled edition (which I am calling TNS-9003r) associates the original story (TNS-9003o) with another incident.

All of these prints are listed below. However, as argued in several articles in the "Articles" section, related to TNS stages, editions, and variations, not all of these prints are part of the TNS series. Moreover, there are several other news nishikie that feature stories taken from the newspaper of the same name. (WW)
