Kabuki Drama (Tourist Library 1948)), Miyake, Shutaro
52 Miyake, Shutaro Kabuki Drama (Tourist Library 1948))
Japan Japan Travel Bureau 1948 Second edition Card cover Very good 
This booklet about Kabuki is #7 in the much collected series of booklets on Japanese topics. The surprising part is the yapped edges -- they're here!! I did repair two small tears with small pieces of archival tape on the back, but this is miraculous, as most yapped edges get lots of tears and often pieces fall off. Others end up being trimmed.The text is very detailed and covers, among others, these subjects: how to appreciate Kabuki, characteristics of Kabuki, the machinery of the Kabuki stage, principle Kabuki plays, Kabuki techniques, symbolism, the story value of Kabuki and more. Booklet measures 5-1/4" x 7-3/4" and has 102 pages.

59 Roosevelt, Theodore; West, Rebecca; St.John, Adela Rogers; Maugham, Somerset; Norris, Kathleen (Hearst's International Combined with Cosmopolitan Magazine November, 1925) Hearst's International Combined With Cosmopolitan Magazine (November, 1925)
New York International Magazine Company 1925 Vol. LXXIX, No. 5 soft cover Very good Condition 
It must have been a happy day when this issue turned up in the mail. It's like having a book and a magazine all in one. Rex Beach, a popular writer of the day, has a complete novel here titled "Padlock: A Novel About Today's Morals." But what's really good is the list of well-known authors. Theodore Roosevelt tells the story of the journey he and his family took to "unknown Asia." Rebecca West had a provocative title for her submission -- "I, Rebecca West, Regard Marriage With Fear and Horror!" The others include Somerset Maugham's, "The Great Man"; Kathleen Norris's No. VIII in her serial novel The Heart of Juanita. And, lastly, there's a memoir about Wild Bill Hickock and Buffalo Cody, among other childhood heroes. The magazine measures 8-1/2" x 11-3/4" with a whopping 230 pages!The spine strip is still intact and the pages are tightly bound. There is creasing to lower front corner, but I re-enforced it with non-browning on the reverse side archival tape on the reverse side to keep it from snapping off.
