B365. The Oshigata Book by Richard Fuller & Ron Gregory. 1985. Softbound, 6 x 8 ¼”, 144 pages in English, inscribed to a former owner by both of the authors. From a limited edition of 500.

And the book delivers what it promises.
The cover is a bit dinged, there is some writing on the back cover, and the bottom corners of the back cover and and last 3 pages are missing (about 1/2"). 7 ounces. $100.
