Book Description Charles E. Tuttle Co., Inc, Rutland, VT, 1959. Cloth. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Hokusai (illustrator). 6 1/2" x 10". Clean, tight, square and bright fourth printing bound in dark brown and salmon cloth with gilt title on spine and calligraphy laid on front cover. No discernible flaws. Dust jacket is corner-clipped, with U.S. price intact, is protected in removable mylar, with very slight wear at foot of spine and soft wrinkles at upper forecorner of back panel. Between 1814 and 1878 a series of 15 woodblock- printed volumes, "Hokusai Manga" or Hokusai's Sketches From Life, were published in Japan. Many tattered copies were carefully photographed to produce the 187 full page plates in this volume, edited and captioned by Michener. Two plates are printed from actual woodblocks to provide a standard for judging the faithfulness of the 3-color offset technique. This book is amazingly beautiful both visually and in its texture. 286 pages includes index, introductory essay. Bookseller Inventory # 2080139694

Gray & pink cloth, 286 pp., rendered in double-page oriental style; 187 tri-tone plates, with sundry BW illus. Selected Manga illustrations rendered by Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai. Introducted at length by famed American author James A. Michener, who had to write his manuscript a second time after he lost the first copy in a plane crash in the Pacific Ocean. His narrative is a joy to read, and the 187 plates that he chose are quite nice as well.
