This book was published in Japan in 1930 and only 500 copies were printed of the ordinary edition. Given a world war and time it is unlikely that more than 250 copies have survived in the world. I have o nly seen one other copy of this book for sale on the internet this past year and at a very much higher price.
Published by J.L. Thompson & Co. (Retail) Kobe Japan in 1930. Author M. Paske-Smith, C.B.E. It has 431 pages of text, over 40 illustrations, fold out plates and maps. there are Yokohama market reports and prices of American Drills (?) to Handkerchiefs ! A very readable history of European Life and trade in Japan. Very useful for authors or students of the far east.
