This book is written in Japanese, not in English. It does include a title page, table of contents and summary text in French. Printed and bound in Japan. Charcoal-colored silk [?] binding with crisp gilt-stamped Japanese characters to the spine. Some rubbing but overall a fairly clean binding. 12 x 9.5 inches. Gently bumped spine tail and lower corners. Text block firmly bound in. With 36 monochrome figures and CXXVI monochrome plates accompanied by detailed notes. The plates on medium-weight, semi-stiff matte stock. No remainder marks. Tiny sticker from previous bookseller neatly pasted to the pastedown. Else a very clean copy, and still rather tight. Gently read. A Very Good copy. All in all a desirable copy of an extremely scarce work featuring bronzes dating from The Warring States Period of China, about 425 to 271 BC.
