About this Item

First Printing. A Fine copy in a Fine, unclipped jacket, with the original price of $3.95 unclipped. The book is quarterbound in blue-green cloth, with light brown paper covered boards, and a sharp, bright green topstain. The fifth book by this highly regarded Japanese author, the last he wrote before his death in 1965. The story of a 77 year old man who suffers a stroke, and then discovers that even though his body is breaking down, his sexual urges are still raging. The fact that his hot daughter-in-law is his caretaker makes for interesting reading. Without question, the nicest copy we've seen anywhere. Bookseller Inventory # 160
