About this Item

Book is very clean and tightly bound with no names or writing. Boards are covered with two different fabrics and cloth is clean throughout. Only faults are some toning to front free endpaper next to spine and two small areas to bottom of back board near outer corner where small pieces of cloth are rubbed away. One small loss of cloth to bottom of front corner too, but overall quite nice. Book is illustrated with black and white photographs, most of whcih are large. The text tells the story of the geisha by telling the story of one young girl from Pontocho and her journey to becoming a geisha. Book mesures 7-1/4" x 10-1/4" and has 195 pages including index.

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
