Descripción

This 349 page eye opener of a First edition Stated, being an increasingly well respected and energetically applauded offering it is proudly presented with great and well deserved hubris by Hirschfeld Galleries in the publishers ORIGINAL binding. Said binding being Publisher's blue cloth with illustration inset to upper board. Said ilustrationis a color woodcut depicting peasants in rain. Sumptuous monochrome photographic illustrations abound, including A laundry on the river's brim, and Digging clams at low-tide in Tokyo Bay. Binding does have light bumping to corners and spine ends, but otherwise rock solid, tight and clean. The author looks dispassionately at all sides of this controversially chosen subject matter, and we at Hirschfield Galleries hope that only those who similarly read and contemplate with an objective mind would yearn to become the next caretaker of this seminalogic work. Alas, when all is said and done and the proverbial geese have come home to nest or roost, or whatever, this book does have the four absolute uppermost qualities we at Hirschfeld Galleries since 1931 have always sought, and demanded, in books: 1) excellence in content, 2) literary quality, 3) appealing design, and 4) significance of contribution. Another great altruistic offering opportunity for us and an even greater opportunity for self-actualized reception on your part. But enough of the lugubrious however allegorically wise jaw-jacking, enough said of the telluric parameters of select Hirschfeld Galleries' offerings such as this one which take on a life of their own and speak so very loudly for themselves. Read to learn and enjoy; go forth to share and enjoin. This was written at a tine when Japan was gearing up for conquest, first in China, then in the entire Pacific Ocean, though of course Julian Street had no knowledge of this planned act of aggressive desecration. Enough said. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 010989
