(Old Books, 20th Century Books, Reference Books, Book Lot, Book Set, Japan, Visual Arts, Culture).
Publisher's bindings. Nice lot of 10 different related 20th century reference books relating to Japanese culture and art
Nice lot of ten (10) mid to late 20th century reference books relating to old & collectible books. Titles included in this lot are all clearly visible in pics, each work is a key or useful reference work worthy of owning if you have an interest in this subject either as a collector or dealer.
Lot is used and shows some mostly minor light trivial signs of handling and time. Lot is not new or in "new" condition. The Heritage of Hiroshige, 1912 by Elder publ. book has the front cover completely detached. The 1903 Japan Natural History book in the blue paper binding with wood cuts has old tape repaired spine and many pages are loose. We have no idea if it is complete, it's sold as we acquired it in this collection. The Large heavy profusely illustrated periodical This is Japan 1957 comes with the original plain brown box (folding closure flap is almost detached on box).
Bindings gently age worn, minor signs of handling but nothing offensive or severe, lot remains overall clean, well preserved and attractive.
Attractive on the shelf. Lot displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Lot is only offered/ sold as is, as seen, we will not break the lot or sell individual books.
Please review photos for more detail showing how this lot survives. The asking price reflects the condition based on our examination and 35+ years full time exposure to antiquarian books and ephemera of all types. Flaws seen and described have been taken into account.
