MATSUYAMA, Shisui. Fune to zosensho no hanashi. 12, 244 pp. Illustrated title, three photo plates, two folding plans, illustrations and photos through the text. 8vo., bound in publisher's colour illustrated boards and slightly rubbed slipcase. Tokyo: Kinto-sha, 1932 [Showa 7].
A spectacular piece of Japanese modernist book design, at least as far as the binding and the slipcase goes. The interior is a drably printed book on shipbuilding. The designer is, alas, not identified. Despite insignificant wear, a fresh copy.
