New York. 1974. Knopf. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 185 pages. December 1974. hardcover. KOBO ABE (1924-1993) was one of Japan's most prominent contemporary writers. Born in Japan but raised in Manchuria, he is perhaps best known for his 1962 novel, THE WOMAN IN THE DUNES, though he was also a prominent screenwriter, producer, and director. Like Samuel Beckett's and Eugene Ionesco's, Abe's plays address universal and contemporary concerns, often with an eye for the absurd. While his American reputation rests largely on his fictional works, Abe was one of the best-known playwrights in Japan. For many years he ran his own theater company, which presented highly accomplished productions of his works. Cover: Original jacket mezzotint by K.B. Hwang. 0394491068. keywords: 41643. inventory # 760. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Kobo Abe, the internationally acclaimed author of WOMAN IN THE DUNES, combines wildly imaginative fantasies and naturalistic prose to create narratives reminiscent of the work of Kafka and Beckett. In this eerie and evocative masterpiece, the nameless protagonist gives up his identity and the trappings of a normal life to live in a large cardboard box he wears over his head. Wandering the streets of Tokyo and scribbling madly on the interior walls of his box, he describes the world outside as he sees or perhaps imagines it, a tenuous reality that seems to include a mysterious rifleman determined to shoot him, a seductive young nurse, and a doctor who wants to become a box man himself. THE BOX MAN is a marvel of sheer originality and a bizarrely fascinating fable about the very nature of identity. . ISBN: 0394491068., Tokyo.: Asahi Shimbun.. 10- 1955. Number 3.. October 1955 issue of the magazine, profusely illustrated in color and black and white, pictographic maps, 350 pp, index of advertisers, 13 x 10 inches, color pictorial wrappers. Very good condition: moderate wear to fore edge of front cover, interior clean. Interesting articles include "How the Average Family Lives - in the City and on the Farm" with info on housing, budget, family activities, food prices, etc. ., Asahi Shimbun., 10- 1955. Number 3., Collins Publishers, May 1986. Hardcover. Used - Very Good. Like the similar books about Australia, Hawaii, and Japan, each of these offers multiple photographic impressions recorded on a single day. Canada, for coverage of so vast a territory, engaged 100 international photographers (to Israelis ' mostly native 55), to produce 100,000 images (to Israelis ' 40,000), from which its several hundred memorable black-and-white and color illustrations were chosen. The photos juxtapose the industrial to the rural. A lively essay recounts experiences organizing the project and photographing on the actual day (June 8, 1984). The photographers get credit next to their pictures; a map shows where each worked that day; and a lengthy section gives their respective backgrounds, illustrated with past work. Israelis seems earnest, even somber, in comparison. With more than 300 equally fine images, it plays down the individual artists, presenting only a list of credits at the end. The introduction discusses not so much this project as the past and present social and political developments in this young nation, placing the images firmly in context. And indeed, throughout the coverage of agriculture, sheep, beaches, and apartment houses are the ubiquitous soldiers with guns. The heat and aridity are everywhere evident on this day (May 10, 1984) in the ``green'' month, before things are parched to brown. Both books use a chronological arrangement and tell when, to the hour, the pictures were taken, but Canada , being so large, offers maps on each page to show the geographical location of particular images. Both recommended for their candid presentation of ordinary daily life. Kathleen Collins, Library of Congress Copyright 1985 Reed Business Information, Inc. Slight scratching/scuffing on dust jacket. Out of print. Open copy. Interior pages in nice condition. Sold as is., Collins Publishers, Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2014. Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. In an age when few people ventured beyond their place of birth, AndrŽ Palmeiro left Portugal on a journey to the far side of the world. Bearing the title "Father Visitor," he was entrusted with the daunting task of inspecting Jesuit missions spanning from Mozambique to Japan. A global history in the guise of a biography, The Visitor tells the story of a theologian whose extraordinary travels bore witness to the fruitful contactÑand violent collisionÑof East and West in the early modern era. In India, Palmeiro was thrust into a controversy over the missionary tactics of Roberto Nobili, who insisted on dressing the part of an indigenous ascetic. Palmeiro walked across Southern India to inspect Nobili's mission, recording fascinating observations along the way. As the highest-ranking Jesuit in India, he also coordinated missions to the Mughal Emperors and the Ethiopian Christians, as well as the first European explorations of the East African interior and the highlands of Tibet. Orders from Rome sent Palmeiro farther afield in 1626, to Macau, where he oversaw Jesuit affairs in East Asia. He played a crucial role in creating missions in Vietnam and seized the opportunity to visit the Chinese mission, trekking thousands of miles to Beijing as one of China's first Western tourists. When the Tokugawa Shogunate brutally cracked down on Christians in JapanÑwhere neither he nor any Westerner had power to interveneÑPalmeiro died from anxiety over the possibility that the last Jesuits still alive would apostatize under torture. Liam Matthew Brockey is Associate Professor of History at Michigan State University. "An account of the fascinating life of [AndrŽ] Palmeiro, a Portuguese appointed by his superiors in Rome in 1617 to inspect Jesuit missions around the world."ÑMark O'Neill, The South China Morning Post "A substantial, scholarly biography of a figure who has hitherto only been a footnote in Jesuit history."ÑThomas Tallon, The Tablet "This story transcends Palmeiro's lifeÉ Indeed, it is Palmeiro's own letters and his lively accounts of his journeys, along with other sources, that Brockey puts to excellent use in his account of Jesuit enterprise in the Portuguese Empire in maritime AsiaÉ In crafting Palmeiro's life story Brockey brilliantly accomplishes his goal of shedding light on different historical contexts as well as the problems and questions of the early modern worldÉ This well-written and enjoyable book illustrates how Palmeiro's final days until his death marked the end of a generation of Jesuits whose dreams materialized in the expansion of Christianity in Asia."ÑAna Carolina Hosne, Times Higher Education "This excellent book describes the Jesuit Asian missions at a crucial time through the eyes and reports of AndrŽ Palmeiro (1569-1635), a Portuguese JesuitÉ Brockey offers many insights in good evocative prose. Telling the story of the missions and disputed matters through Palmeiro is very effective, not least because it enables readers to see how the Asian missions functioned on a personal and practical level."ÑP. Grendler, Choice "A richly colored baroque portrait of a philosophy professor turned world traveler, the Portuguese priest AndrŽ Palmeiro. Its subject spent two decades as a plenipotentiary 'visitor' representing the highest authorities of the Jesuit order in mission areas extending from Mozambique and Ethiopia through Goa and Malabar to China and Japan. The political and cultural challenges that Palmeiro faced in that vast and varied space are treated extensively. The Visitor is a display of rigorous and inventive historical scholarship, founded in a mastery of the archives. Brockey writes with imagination, scope, and style."ÑJ. S. A. Elisonas, Indiana University "Liam Brockey does what an excellent scholar should in a pioneering work. He helps us understand Palmeiro's work and its importance for the history of the world. He also achieves what seemed impossible from the evidence available: vividly and convincingly, he evokes much of Palmeiro's spiritual and intellectual life."ÑFelipe Fern‡ndez-Armesto, author of Our America, Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2014, Skira Rizzoli, July 2011. Hardcover. New. An extraordinary private collection of watercolors and drawings by Andrew Wyeth depicting the subjects memorialized in his legendary painting Christina's World, one of the best-known works of American art. This book presents rarely seen watercolors and drawings Andrew Wyeth made of his friend Christina Olson, her brother Alvaro, and the weathered Maine farmstead where they lived. It features moving portraits and serene interior and exterior views of the house and the surrounding land, now memorialized in Wyeth's 1948 tempera painting Christina's World, one of the most famous paintings in the history of American art and now in the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Some forty-five works from the collection of the Marunuma Art Park in Japan, rarely shown before in the United States, are accompanied by works from the Farnsworth as well as by historical photographs of Wyeth, the Olsons, and the house. Otoyo Nakamura writes about the history of this collection of Wyeth works, and Michael Komanecky addresses the place of the Olson farm in Wyeth's career over three decades, and how Christina's World and the Olson House have inspired pilgrimages for fans of Wyeth's work. Despite its isolated location and seasonal schedule, Olson House draws thousands of visitors each year from around the world. The Olson House, acquired by the Farnsworth Art Museum in 1991, has been recommended for National Landmark status., Skira Rizzoli, Tokyo: Kodansha Int.

For centuries, bamboo has fascinated legions of craftspeople, plant lovers and devotees of the handcrafted object. And nowhere is bamboo used more elegantly and distinctly than in Japan. Its presence touches every part of daily life-art, crafts, design, literature, and food. Its beauty enlivens textile designs, restaurant interiors, and holiday festivities. <BR>Artist and writer Nancy Moore Bess set out to discover just how bamboo-crafted objects attained such heights in Japan. Her travels took her throughout the country and through centuries of accumulated artifacts. After five years of dedicated research and study, she has assembled an unparalleled collection of writings and photographs that uncover the hidden beauty of bamboo. <BR>Bess unveils the boundless uses of this versatile material in Japan, ranging from the most elegant and refined to the most humble. She shows bamboo's applications in the garden and home, in the cherished accessories of the tea ceremony and flower arranging, and in an endless array of crafts from elaborate baskets to colorful kites and dolls. <BR>With illuminating text and over 250 exquisite photographs, illustrations, and artwork, Bess reveals the intricacies and resources of this lovely versatile plant. She explores the Japanese reverence for bamboo's natural beauty, adding immeasurably to our knowledge of the Asian sensibility and lifestyle. <BR>[AN ON-LINE INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR]<BR>Q. Could you tell us a little about your background? <BR>A. I am fond of saying that I'm a basketmaker from California. It is true, but ... I have lived on the east coast more years than those early, influential ones in California. I learned to make baskets on 8th Avenue in New York City. Basketry is the focus of my professional life. I weave, teach, and exhibit. No matter where I travel, I find basketmakers and a conversation begins. Much of my first trip in Japan (11 months in 1986-87) was devoted to meeting basketmakers and watching them work. <BR>Q. What motivated you to write this book? / What got you started? <BR>A. When I first wrote the book proposal, I was thinking only of those basketmakers I had met in Japan - how hard they worked, how varied their baskets, how ubiquitous basketry was in Japan. As the book topic broadened to include ALL of bamboo in Japan, I found that I had much to learn, and the research began. Each interview led to more library work. Each book in the library led to more interviews. It was a never-ending circle for five years. I still can't resist a good book that reveals something new to me about bamboo in Japan. <BR>Q. Could you tell us a little about the contents of the book? <BR>A. The main thesis of the book is that bamboo touches every aspect in daily life in Japan, even in urban Tokyo or Osaka. At first, everyone tends to think this is an overly 'romantic' approach; however, upon more careful examination (or reading of Bamboo in Japan), it becomes clear that, unlike other single 'material' in Japan, bamboo is linked to everything - language, ritual, home life, food, design, art, and crafts. Other plants are important, pine and rice straw, for instance. But they don't have both the symbolism AND the practical use, it is 'either/or.' Only bamboo touches the everyday and the elegant, the practical and the elite, the farmer and the urban housewife. Only bamboo can go from kitchen zaru to the artwork of Living National Treasures. <BR>Q. What do you see as the centerpiece of the book? / Why is the book important? <BR>A. The marriage of text and illustration makes Bamboo in Japan successful. This bond allows the reader to penetrate the book at many different levels - one can look at the illustrations, read only the captions, dive into one section or all. All the text and illustrations are tied to the main thesis - bamboo touches every aspect of daily life in Japan - so the impact is considerable. <BR>Bamboo in Japan is important, in part, because it hasn't been done before. Earlier English-language books on the topic of bamboo covered part of the story, but not all. This book offers everyone a chance to really read about this incredible plant in Japan and its many guises. Bamboo enchants, and Bamboo in Japan lets the reader experience this. <BR>Q. What did you yourself learn from writing the book? <BR>A. So many things ... some personal and emotional. I learned that I can't do everything, but I can be persistent and decide my priorities. I knew I was attracted to bamboo as a craft material, but I didn't realize how passionate I would become about bamboo as a plant. I'll never stop reading and learning about bamboo and never stop being an advocate for bamboo workers. <BR>Q. What would you like readers to take away with them after reading this book? <BR>A. I'd like people to acknowledge the bamboo craftspeople for their skill, vulnerability, and dedication. I'd like everyone to look to other cultures with an open mind and heart. I'd like them to walk down a lane in Japan and SEE the bamboo. <BR>Q. What people or books were influential in the writing of your book? <BR>A. The Japanese publications about bamboo and crafts were an amazing resource. I only wish I could read them myself and not have to rely on sections being translated for me. That separation between me and the information is troubling. I always think there is one more book I need to read, one more craftsperson I need to talk with, one more garden I need to photograph ... then I'll be on top of it. The bamboo enthusiasts in both Japan and the USA were amazing. We all share a common passion, and they were generous with information and, sometimes, funding. The Japan Bamboo Society in Kyoto was especially helpful, as was The American Bamboo Society here. I'd still be writing if ABS hadn't helped me out with grants! <BR>Q. What are your plans for the future, in terms of new books or other projects? <BR>A. I don't think I'll ever stop the research on bamboo. At the moment, I am concentrating on gathering information about bamboo as a 'motif' in folk tales around the world. I suspect that will be my next book. However, the link to Japan will not be broken. I try to assist others who want to do research there; I keep in touch with bamboo folks there and with basketmakers; I get back whenever I can scramble together the money for a ticket. There is nothing like the feeling of flying into Narita or arriving on the night train into the bamboo region of Beppu - that expectation of yet another wonderful bamboo moment! <BR>Q. Is there anything else the reader should know? <BR>A. Find something you are passionate about and pursue it. Or borrow my passion, bamboo in Japan, and immerse yourself in another world.
