Beautiful book bound in soft cover with Japanese silk sewing at spine. The title of the book is on the cover, but also in black at the outer edge of every page (see photo).There's also a lovely two page art work in color at front. The book was inscribed and SIGNED on the title page by the author who wrote thus, "To Connie with best wishes from the author. Tokyo. March 30, 1953."The book is encased in a chemise which is a box that folds over the book. The cover paper of the chemise is charming and has a paste-on label to front. The only fault with it is a bit of foxing to the lining. The text is filled with quotations, poems, small stories, and more. Together the book in its case measures 6-1/2" x 9" with 152 pages. The spine has toned, but the clasp works well to protect the book.
