About this Item

One of the harder Hasegawa crepe paper books to come by (in its original format). Presumed first edition, or early, since the address given on the colophon corresponds to Hasegawa's address at the time. A light, both entertaining and informative survey of the many ways the Japanese do things differently from Westerners, often the exact opposite way, and according to Patton, not infrequently, in a manner that is somehow superior. Strictly speaking, this book is as directed at an adult audience as a juvenile one, in contrast to many other Hasegawa titles. 19.5 by 16.5 cm. 37 pp. Topics range from Japanese books, to funeral processions, manners, embroidering, equine stabling, gardens, and on and on. Patton leaves few stones unturned. Soiling of the cover. Bright and fresh otherwise. Bookseller Inventory # 004950

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
