Good Plus. 1 of 2000 copies printed. Biography of this literary giant, who wrote primarily about matters Japanese, and in fact was also known by the Japanese name of Koizumi Yakumo. 335 pp. biography itself, to which is appended an important early bibliography by Laura Stedman of 80 pp. 7 plates (including frontis). Tan cloth over brown boards, with brown debossed titling to front, gilt to spine. Moderate edgewear and slight separating at shelf-points to spine caps. Front hinge started, but solid, as is rest of book. Top edge trimmed, others not.
First edition, 8vo, pp. 416; portrait frontispiece, very good and sound in contemporary half green cloth over marbled boards. An important and early study; the bibliography-the first done of Hearn-is extensive (though not comprehensive) and occupies the last 80 pages. BAL IV, p. 103.
