A selection of lectures on Western authors ( Chaucer, Spenser, Marlowe, Donne, Webster, Herrick, Bunyan, Swift, Johnson, Chatterton, Hood, Browning, Arnold, Thomson and Melville) given chiefly at Tokyo University. This book is in overall fair condition. No dust jacket. The hard cover has cream paper to the spine and part of the boards, the rest is covered in hand-made paper. Due to the nature of the paper, it in poor condition and has been quite worn away on the corners and spine (see photo). Inside, the hand-made paper end papers are in very good condition and so are the pages themselves.
