I have a soft spot for Japanese books, so I've bought many of them over my 19 years in business, yet this is the first time I ever had THIS one. The book is charming and clean with very little defect and only if you consider it to be one -- a previous owner attached a blank bookplate (older) to the front pastedown (see photo). Book measures 6" x 8-1/2" with a binding of paper over boards. The 74 pages are very clean with no writing and are printed on lovely cream paper and illustrated with small drawings throughout the text. There are also two pages at front showing the netsukes in full color. Book covers the origins and development of netsuke, the kinds of netsuke, subjects portrayed, makers and materials, and signatures. Netsuke are little treasures made of many materials including ivory, metal and porcelain etc. They're very popular items to collect.
