8vo., First Edition, with a portrait frontispiece, 90 plates on 32, and 3 full-page illustrations and 4 maps (one full-page) in the text, some light offsetting from fold-ins to free endpapers; cloth gilt, gilt back, small stain at lower margin of upper board else a very good, bright, clean copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter moderately age-soiled and frayed with minor loss at upper edge of front panel. Piggott was a mainstay of Britain's relations with Japan for over a quarter of a century; his classic and detailed autobiography covers the progress of Anglo-Japanese diplomacy from the 1880s to WWII. The many fascinating photographs are largely from the author's private collection and therefore otherwise unpublished; they include valuable early studies of Japanese diplomatic and military groups and personalities later pre-eminent in WWII.
