FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING, so stated; in French; translated from Japanese into English by Toshiyuki Nishikawa and Laurence M. Wiig, edited by Robert M. Goodman and John E. Reinecke; from the collection of the linguist, Glenn Gilbert, with Gilbert's inscription on the ffep stating that he received the book from John E. Reinecke August 21, 1975, small amount of shelfwear, some spine sunfading, rated Near Fine; Chen Yu-Hsi apparently prevailed and fared better later in life with the overthrow of the Taiwanese dictatorship -- a Google search shows Chen to be a Professor at the Department of Religious Studies, Fu Guang University, Taiwan (if this Chen Yu-Hsi is the same person); see also Taipei Times, Sunday Profile, August 31, 2008 (http://www.taipeitimes.com/images/2008/08/31/TT-970831-P14-IB.pdf) where Chen is listed among "those who helped break the oppressors' back"; Reinecke and his wife Aiko Reinecke aided and supported Chen in every way possible, one of Reinecke's last efforts before his death; this copy was sent to me as soon as it became available; soft covers are red with black lettering, the publisher's logo on the spine and Chen's name in Chinese characters on the front; 12mo -- 7 1/4 inches high, xi + 228 numbered pages.

Store Description

Triple G Books is owned and operated by an emeritus professor of linguistics, who was also an ardent book collector over the period 1954 to 2007. Books for sale range from linguistics, pidgin & creole languages, sociolinguistics, anthropology, education, and comparative religion through modern first editions and German and Scandinavian books. A number of the books are valuable and hard to find, as for example a 1/2-leather-bound first edition of Alfred Russell Wallace's The Malay Archipelago (2 vols.), recently sold for presentation to the Mayor of London on his visit to Malaysia, and a first edition of H. G. Wells' The Time Machine, a novel of the 19th century pointing to a scary future, a continuing revelation to me. Triple G Books stands back of its books in every way.
