tderz: Possible errata and omissions are:
Shuho is missing in the players list (around page 237), while having an own column on p. 82 ("Go players in the Edo era").

Although the introduction (p. 202) seems to limit the entries in the Who's Who in the Japanese World of Go to the Nihon & Kansai Kiin and mentions that players of the Edo period (1603-1868) would be listed in chapters 10 & 11 (wrongly "9 & 10"),
Honinbo Shuei (1852-1907) is listed on page 237 while actually falling in between periods.
Therewith Shuei is thus incorrectly (at least inconsistently what the book says on p. 202 w.r.t. chapters 10 & 11 and its definition for entries) placed there (not being a member of either the NK or KK): Shuei is in , Shuho is not.

Page 65 mentions that a "certain amount of repetition has been unavoidable".

However, an even greater repetition appears better to me, because the GoAlmanac? does not comprise a register. The other, about 60 entries of the 4 Go houses (p. 64) could have got as well their names listed on pages 202-247, only having a page reference to their descriptions on pages 65-83.
