1 Yee, Chang Silent Traveller in Japan, The
New York W.W. Norton & Company Inc. 1972 First Edition Cloth Near Fine Very Good+ 
This is an amazing and unusual book. Published in 1972 this book is one of this author's series known as The Silent Traveller. He has written books about Boston and Paris as well. He also covers San Franscisco in this series and that volume can be found in my Ebay Store. This book is basically the country of Japan viewed from the very unique perspective of Chiang Yee. The book is illustrated with sixteen of the author's magnificent color paintings and over fifty of his black and white drawings. It is also peppered with some of the poetry of the author. Yee writes with a personal approach that is rich in memories. The book is written with an artist's response to beauty and a scholar's interest in the march of history. The book itself is in near fine condition and is beautifully bound and presented. There is a bump to the lower right corner of the front board and a corresponding bump to the lower left of the rear board. Otherwise the book is fine and the boards are very clean and look new. The dust jacket shows some toning and light wear with age and some slight soiling on the back cover. There are no tears or rips and the jacket is not price-clipped. This volume will please any reader searching for something a little different. It is contemplative as well as moving. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
