Green cloth with black letters on the spine and with a black flower and three Japanese characters in black on the front cover. Fine with no internal markings. Dust jacket fine. Dust jacket rear panel carries a photo of Ruth Kirk and Ira Spring seated at a desk going over some photographs for Sigemi. ¿This is a lively factual account of the way in which eleven-year-old Sigemi lives in a village eight miles from Tokyo¿. Mrs. Kirk lived in Sigemi¿s village for three months, and Mr. Spring¿lived there with his family for a year. Out of their close association with Sigemi, her family and friends, has come this authentic portrayal of a charming young Japanese.¿ [from the dust jacket} This is an unusual book for juveniles written by a well-known Pacific Northwest author and illustrated by an equally well-known Pacific Northwest photographer.
