Tokyo: Japan Sword Co., Ltd., 1948. Hardcover. Good + / No Dustjacket. Item #074164
Clean, bright pages except for a band of toning at each free endpaper; no owners' marks; white inked titles on front and spine are mostly attenuated, with some light streaking from the letters visible on the full red cloth, but hard cover is otherwise clean and sound. Jacket bears two droplet stains on the front, a small open tear at the top rear, and some additional closed edge tears around top and bottom as well as light edge chipping there and along foreedges and spine sides, yet remains vivid and attractive in a new, clear sleeve.
