About this Item

1st, original edition: no others printed that we can find. Attractive silver & black-stamped cloth. 63pp. Illustrated with the author's b/w & color photos, plus drawings. Portrait frontispiece. Map. Text in Japanese & English. Both binding and text are elegantly designed & printed. Each leaf is a double-leaf (intended), uncut and with no print inside the fold. Nakabe was a "delegate to the Russo - Japanese Fisheries Convention." "I left Haneda Air Port on April 21st . and came back home on June 12, 1956." He visited London, Zurich, Paris, Stockholm, Moscow, New York, Boston, Niagara Falls, Vancouver, San Pedro, Astoria, Lake Arrowhead, & Honolulu. Many pages are photos with captions (very good memoir photography, many of them including Mr. Nakabe with others) & some are mainly text concerning what he did and saw and who he met. Includes photos of the signing of the Japanese Soviet Fisheries Treaty. He attended the International Whaling Conference in London. One source mentions that Nakabe was an industrialist. A truly rare book your bookseller finds nowhere in world libraries outside of Japan nor in the National Diet Library of Japan. Probably printed for friends, colleagues, & family.
