From a blurb by the Journal of Asian Studies: "The ten chapters of this exemplary monograph cover every aspect of the book in traditional Japan: its place in Japanese history; books as material objects; manuscript cultures; printing; the Edo period book trade; authors and readers; importation and exportation; censorship; libraries and collectors; and bibliographic catalogues. . . ."
This is a heavy book and will require an increased shipping fee. In white wrappers, minor edgewear. Interior bright. Very good. (Inventory #: 37690)
