The Japanese Fairy Book
Second edition, with colour frontispiece by Take Sato
Second edition, hardback bound in grey cloth with red and black printed design to spine and upper board. 25.5 × 19cm, 296pp.
A collection of 22 Japanese fairy tales, translated from the modern Japanese of Sadanami Sanjin. The book is illustrated with a delightful double-spread colour frontispiece and a large number of black & white drawing within the text.
A good plus copy. There is a hint of bowing to the boards and light surface wear and abrasions. The contents are in very good order, though thee is some tanning to the page edges and light foxing to the prelims and title page. The binding is secure. Previous owner's name to ffep.
