World of Japanese Tattooing

Tokyo: Haga Shoten, 1973. First edition. 4to, 253 pp, bound in full blue cloth in gilt at the spine. Profusely illustrated with drawings and photographs, many of the latter in color and/or full page. Housed in a photographically illustrated slipcase. Foreward and initial section in English, with the remainder of the book in Kanji.

The first and only edition of this landmark work of scholarship on the subject - a beautifully produced book which has become very scarce in the ensuing years. OCLC locates only three holdings worldwide.

Near fine, with a bare touch of fading to the spine and a very slight tap to upper tip of front panel. The slipcase is toned and bumped at extremities, with overall rubbing to extremities and a faint tidemark along one edge, but still sound and very good. Rare, especially in slipcase. Item #27209
