Collecting Things

by Catherine S on Aug 9, 2012

If you like to collect objects this is a great read about the significance of objects in people's lives. The family history revealed in this story also gives a particular perspective about Jewish life through the two world wars in Europe. And if you like Japanese objects this book describes netsuke in fine detail.

Excellent service

by Toni M on Dec 1, 2011

The copy of this marvelous book about Japanese netsukes and European Jewish history in the late 19th/early 20th centuries arrived in perfect condition. I recommend the book and the bookseller to anyone interested in cultural heritage and in the magical tiny objects carved in ivory or basswood that fit in one's pocket and are priceless.
