Book Description Osaka, Japan; Hoikusha, 1955. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 8vo,204pps+1p. with a price in Japanese of 950Yen and in English of $6.00, and a tax(?) stamp covered by a square of tissue paper pasted in. The illustrations appear to be color photographs, with the descriptions in Japanese, but the scientific genus, species, and family of each shell is in the Latin, in the English alphabet. Green cloth over boards, lettered on front and spine in silver Japanese kanji, with a color photo of three shells pasted to the front cover. Green pictorial end papers. The rear free end paper has a rectangular stain as from a newspaper clipping laid in. There are four items laid in: a small 4 page pamphlet in kanji, with a photograph of a man whom we assume to be the author; a postcard, also in kanji, which we assume to be asking for the reader's opinion of the book; what appears to be a library catalog card,although this is NOT a library copy; and the original bookstore price ticket. Text in Japanese. Minor shelf wear to bottom edges and corners. Top of the text block has some light brown spotting. Pictorial dust jacket is slightly crinkled along top edge and has 3/4" tear at top of front panel. Contents are clean, tight, and unmarked. Near Fine/Near Fine. $25.00. Seller Inventory # 1236
