Flower, Bird and Tree of Kyoto Prefecture

by Kyoto Prefectural Office

Condition: Near Fine/No Jacket

Kyoto: Not Stated, 1970. Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. Not Stated. Surely a promotional photographic essay on the region. Magnificent hard cover came from the estate of a noted American politician. Most of the text and captioning seem to be rendered in English and Japanese. Rich violet basketweave cloth exterior with gilt stamping. May have a trace of sunning. Text unmarked, binding sound. Publication data appears to be all in Japanese and therefore not available for this listing. As handsome a photographing of Japanese design and architecture as I have ever come across. Date given is a guess as none is given in English in the text. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. Books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, and graded, using the strict, traditional standards. For this reason, we have virtually zero returns.*.
