The Japan I Love

£9.99

Product description

Publisher: Tudor Publishing Company, 1966. An exploration of Japan, accompanied by 126 photographs 12 of which are in full colour. Robert Guillain, Pierre Landy and Francois Meilleau provide a history and guide to Japan and those who live there, the writers are particularly proud of themselves for having a deep understanding of the nation, and their confidence in their own opinion can provide for an amusing contemporary reading. The blurb of the book describes the photographs as making it "perhaps the most beautiful book on Japan ever published". While this seems slightly hyperbolic, the 126 photographs do contain some wonderful images, and make the book a worthwhile read.

The book has a white rough cloth binding, with the title embossed on the cover and spine. This copy does have a dustcover, which has a full colour photograph on the front and back. The cover is in a somewhat decent condition, the dustcover has general shelfware and one medium sized tear on the top front left, which has been repaired with tape on the reverse of the dustcover.

Inside the pages are usual clean and unmarked, with only very slight yellowing at the top edge of some of the pages. However, some of the pages have come loose. On the whole this is a interesting book with some wonderful photographs, printed and bound nicely. The condition is not perfect, but would be good for a reading copy.
