About This Item

Text is clean and unmarked in a square and tight binding. Front and back binding have stains. Price unclipped DJ is intact with very minor wear around the outer edges and some foxing. Stated first edition. A solid volume. From the front DJ flap, " ...Mr. Lancaster, who was five years American vice-consul at Kobe, Japan, has written a novel with an altogether different historical setting - 17th century Japan, when the Dutch East India Company had a rich but precarious foothold in that little-known land."
