Long kanji sequence

Postby Yudan Taiteki » Sat 08.04.2007 11:32 pm

I think this may be the longest string of kanji I have ever seen in a Japanese text; it's from the introduction to the 新古今和歌集全評釈:

新古今和歌集の本文は、東京大学附属図書館蔵室町時代写伝橋本公夏筆新古今和歌集ニ帖を底本とした。

29 kanji.

Eschew obfuscation and gratuitously sesquipedalian obstreperous proclamations if you please, sir.

I'm not sure how to read 公夏, but other than that it's "The Muromachi period manuscript of the two volumes of the Shin Kokin Wakashu written by Hashimoto ?? held in the archives of the Tokyo University Library."
