1 Stewart, Harold Trans. A Net of Fireflies
Tokyo Charles E. Tuttle 1965 First Edition Later Printing Slip-Case - Hard Cover Fine No Jacket 
This beautiful volume is an anthology of 320 Haiku. They were written over a span of five centuries by many of Japan's foremost poets. The book itself, which is in very fine condition but for a gift inscription on the ffep and a very small embossment to the half-title page is a remarkable achievement. There are 33 paintings in the book that are reproduced in full color. These swiftly brushed sketches, seldom seen outside Japan until this publication, are an important facet of Haiku. There is a deeply perceptive essay at the end of the book in which the translator explores the furthest reaches of Haiku with an eye to its metaphysical implications. This book's slipcase does show wear and rubbing but it has done a wonderful job of keeping the book itself in perfect condition. Each page of the textblock is a double page in that it is connected to the following page at it's outside edge. The volume is a lovely production. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
