The Fountain of Youth - Lafcadio Hearn Elusive plain paper edition
Japanese Fairy Tale
The Fountain of Youth
Rendered into English by Lafcadio Hearn
Tokyo. T. Hasegawa & Son. 1930
23.8 x 18cm. 14pp.
One of the most elusive of all Hasegawa's publications. This is the first we have ever seen (in twenty years of looking).
Tiniest amount of spotting to edge of first and second page. Otherwise in fine condition throughout.
Two of the photos above show the difference in size between this plain paper version (on the left) and the crepe paper version (on the right). Note the book for sale is only the plain paper edition on the left.
