Bob McGuigan As a point of history, I think the first publication of the Kiseido Publishing Company was "Invincible--The Games of Shusaku" This was published in 1982 and Ishi Press was still active and publishing then. To us outsiders Kiseido appeared to be John Power's marque for what we hoped would be a series of books like "Invincible" on great go masters. No other books appeared, though, and when the Ishi Press mess occurred Kiseido began publishing more books as listed above.

Richard Hunter I think it would be better to consider "Invincible--The Games of Shusaku" as completely separate from the other Kiseido books. Kiseido was originally a company formed by John Power. After the publication of "Invincible--The Games of Shusaku", he transferred the name Kiseido to Richard Bozulich, who needed a company to reissue reprints of old Ishi Press books and publish new books. The before and after versions of Kiseido have no connection to each other.
