Price: 
$60 + Shipping & Insurance

C131.  Japanese Treasure Tales by Tomita & Lee.  1906 1st edition.  Hardbound, 6 x 9”, 96 pages in English.  This is a rare and difficult to find book on Japanese history and folk lore, and how they are expressed in Japanese art.  A story is told and photographs show the artists’ interpretations in sword fittings, netsuke, and tobacco pouch mountings.

Corners are lightly bumped and there is some mild foxing inside.  The binding is perfectly intact and all else is well.  A former owner has pasted inside the front a newspaper article about a display of Japanese arms and armor that took place at the Japan Society in New York.  1 pound, 1 ounce.  $60.
