The Yosan Hiroku was exported abroad by the Siebold. During this time, Europe was struggling with a countermeasure against silkworm disease which had spread. This book was included among the items presented by Siebold to the King of Holland. It was translated into French and later published in Paris and Italy in 1848, making a significant contribution to the silkworm breeding industry in Europe. This is a well known example of Japanese technology from the Edo period having an impact overseas in areas other than painting and performing arts.
