Item number: p0gka6U8nVk 358
Antique illustrated book "The Wonderful City of Tokio or Further Adventures of the Jewett Family and their Friend Oto Nambo" by Edward Greey, copyright 1883.
Measures 9.25 inches tall, 7 inches wide. 301 pages.
The most beautiful cover I have ever seen with blossoms, a mountain, man on a fish and gilded background and spine. Wear along the edges, and crease between the front cover and spine, the pages are in tact, but nearly completely separated from the cover and spine. When you open the front cover, it collapses and separates from the pages. I am sure it could be easily repaired but do not want to make matters worse and will leave it up to experienced hands. Beautiful end papers of Japanese people, handwriting from 1882 on blank page, very few smears, nice clean pages.
One hundred and sixty-nine illustrations.
Cover designed and drawn by the author.
