Published in 1979 by the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Thames and Hudson. This volume is a facsimile copy of a book in the collection of the Met Museum of Art. The original illustrations are woodblock images. The slip cover is grubby and cracked. The edges are bumped and browned but has protected the book somewhat. There is a little foxing in places and one of the pages at the bottom are a 2 cm tear against the spine. The book opens out in a zig zag way. Look at the pictures carefully. Dont hesitate to ask for more pictures or if you have any questions you are welcome to ask.
