First Edition, Limited Edition of 250 copies. "The take of the Forty-seven Ronin is historic, it is legendary, it is found in drama and has been generously illustrated by Japanese artists, yet is is very inadequately known outside of Japan. The author has added a recital of pilgrimages which he himself has taken to the points of greatest interest for the purpose of impressing the scenes on the mind. He adds studious and not inconsiderable travels in Japan and a prolonged experience as a collector of Japanese prints". Near Fine in Good dustjacket, few shallow chips, foxing to panels, few small stains at spine.
