Book Description

A really quite well preserved copy of this unusual Fairy Tale first published in Japan in 1880. This is the English translation by E Rothesay Miller. The book is produced entirely on cloth derived 'washi paper' and illustrated in colour throughout ; the colour has remained fresh and bright. The front cover and the first 6 or so pages show creasing to the bottom right corner but no fraying or loss because of the nature of the paper. The front and back covers are a little grubby and there is some cracking to the paper covered spine. The book is however complete thanks to the robust simple corded binding. A scarce and unusual book.
