About This Item

London: : Sampson Low, Marston & Co. Ltd, , 1899. First Edition. A lovely copy of this work. The binding is immaculate (it was finished last week!). Inside, the first 4 leaves have moderate foxing to them. The rest of the book is clean and tidy, with just a little darkening to the edges. Library marks are limited to a stamp to the verso of the title pages, then small discreet stamps to the top of page 1, and the bottom of page 480. Tape residue to the last page (list of author's other works). . New half calf (dark blue) with corresponding buckram cloth. Gilt titles to spine. New end papers. Text and Japanese characters throughout. Ex library, but the rebinding has resulted in very few library marks remaining. Chamberlain was one of the foremost Japanologists active in the Nineteenth Century. He wrote some of the earliest translations of haiku into English. During his tenure at the Tokyo Imperial University, he sent many Japanese artifacts to the Pitt Rivers Museum at Oxford.
