A near Fine unmarked copy with no inscriptions with pictorial cloth boards. There is only minor dust marking to top edge and minor marks to fore edge. Internally very clean, tight and unmarked. Dustjacket is also near Fine and is not price clipped. 290 pages. 20 photographs by Yoichi Midorikawa. 1 fold out map. The Inland Sea is much more than a travel book. True, it is an account of a real journey through Japan's beautiful Seto Naikai, that landlocked, island studded sea that is perhaps the only remaining 'real Japan'. But it goes far beyond this. It is also a moving description of the islands and their people, of their history and folklore. The book has become a classic and is regarded as one of the finest travel memoirs. Donald Richie (1924-2013) was an American born writer who became an expert on Japan, where he lived. **** SCARCE TO FIND IN SUCH A GOOD CONDITION ****
