The name is indeed mis-spelled.  A classification proposal will be submitted to have it corrected.

The caption for PL799.E52 in Classification web (CF 00437674) has the

    $a PL799.E52 $h Languages of Eastern Asia, Africa, Oceania
    $h Japanese language and literature $h Japanese literature
    $h Individual authors and works $h Late Edo period, 1789-1867
    $h Other, A-Z $j Ema, Seik(macron)o, 1787-1861

with $j entered as "Ema, Seik(macron)o, 1787-1861," with the last date of 
transaction of this record specified as Sept. 5, 2003.

However, there is no NAR for Seiko Ema in the LC/NACO Authority File.  It 
is wondered whether this "Ema, Seik(macron)o, 1787-1861" in Classification 
web (CF 00437674) is instead meant to read "Ema, Saik(macron)o, 1787-1861" 
represented by LC NAR LCCN n  80085395:
