92pp. Twenty-fourmo [13.5 cm] White cloth covered boards with black ink stamped titles and decorative designs on the spine and covers. Very good. The spine and covers have general mild soiling, age-toning and foxing. The spine and top edge of the text block are darkened. The extremities are gently bumped. Very minor spine slant. The front endsheet has a small sticker and stamp. There is a contemporary owner's notation on the front free endsheet. There is a small date in pen on the last page of the text, and there is a tiny ink stamp on the publisher's advertisement at the rear. The text block is just beginning to crack at p. 31. Tanned pages. The pages have very occasional light foxing.
Subjects include the go-between, the "Yoshi," and divorce among other things.
