Bosworth, Illustrated by: Matsuoka, Jack  
Ginza Go, Papa-san
 Picture
Publisher: Charles E. Tuttle Company , , 1956 Rutland, VT.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Dust Jacket. Audio Book (CD) "Ginza Go, Papa-san grew out of a witty essay in the Saturday Evening Post and is a book whose charm and homor is so singular that it is best explained by a synopsis of a few of the sixteen chapters: "Let's All Climb Fuji-san, in which a middle-aged man (only the moustache is old) forms the Allan R. Bosworth Memorial Expedition and it's proven that one can climb 1, 600 feet on three bottles of bourbon, concluding with 'Bee-hind justa rittle hurt.' "The Templed Hills of Koya-san, wherein Papa-san visit's the famous Buddhist retreat located on Mt. Koya and discovers that true religion neither knows nor acknowledges any racial barriers and that a love of humanity whether expressed in English or Japanese is a refreshing discovery. "Sashimi! O-sushi! Raw, Raw, Raw! In which Papa-san fights with the raw dishes served at a Japanese meal and discovers that some are so raw that they aren't even dead. Concluding with a sensational battle with the ollest oddity of all raw Japanese delicacies--the octopus. "Some Elder Literary Gentlemen, wherein the opinions on Japan of Hearn, Paris, and Very Proper Englishmen are seen in retrospect and it is proposed that either too much or too little affection for people hampers understanding. "Driving is Justa Little Different, in which Papa-san looks up some driving rules at the Tokyo Central Police Station sees: 'When a passenger of and the foot heave in sight, tootle the horn. Trumpet at him. Melodiously at first, but if he still obstacles your way tootle him with vigor'. "Through his wit, humor, and love of people, Allan R. Bosworth has captured a quality of profound understanding seldom found in the more learned and academic works on the Japanese. A deep and abiding affection for the people of Japan has neither dulled his keen wit nor affected his objectivity. In Ginza Go, Papa-san he has succeeded in achieving a delicate balance between humor and understanding that makes light, informative, and poignant reading." Nicely illustrated. 208 pages.

Naipaul, V. S.  
India: A Million Mutinies Now

Publisher: New York: Viking, 1991..
First US Edition. 24 X 16 cm. VG/Near Fine. Quarter black cloth, black paper-covered boards, gilt titles on spine, [v], 521 pp. Some soiling to edges (mostly top edge), bottom edges of boards fading, one corner bumped. DJ has light edge wear; in Brodart archival cover. From the DJ: "As Naipaul travels east, west, north, and south, his carefully structured journey begins to read like a novel. Each character has his story, and each story reveals another facet of the totality which is India. There is the ferociously successful businessman with a shrine in his office, the old friend who has become a recluse and a saint, the Sikh farm visited hours after a massacre. Everywhere, among a multitude of discovered lives, there are mutinies--against the British, against the government, against the Brahmins. And everywhere a tradition of self-sacrifice quite alien and surprising to the West." Shipping weight 3 lbs.

Relton, Max:  
A Man in the East, a journey through French Indo-China.

Publisher: London, Michael Joseph, 1939. (1st Edition) .
287pp with 15 b/w illus, and pictorial map endpapers charting the author's route to French Indo-China. Signed by the author to title page. On the half-title and facing pages have been glued text from the dustwrapper flaps. "This is an account of a journey through parts of China and Indo-China. The author, a twenty-eight year-old chartered accountant, worked for two years with a firm in China, but, having a taste for freedom and adventure he soon tired of this humdrum and superficial existence. He obtained a release from his contract, and decided to fulfil a long-standing ambition to visit the western provinces of China, and thence to travel south into Indo-China. Mr Relton tells his story in a most entertaining way. He has a sense of proportion and an original sense of humour, and his adventures make capital reading. Whether he is describing a Chinese city in the Far West, or tracking an elephant (with more determination than success) in the jungles of Indo-China, or contrasting British and French colonial administration, or lying at the point of death in a little French steamer, whose captain, though at heart the kindliest of men, refuses to believe that his fever is anything more than sea-sickness, it is impossible not to appreciate his sane humour or be delighted with his admirable felicity of expression. Books on the war in China are legion and Mr Relton has made no serious attempt to add to their number. But nevertheless, he has not been able to penetrate the disintegrating Chinese Republic without offering his own balanced and well-informed views of the war and its present trends. But, interesting though much of his information is on this subject, it is primarily as excellent entertainment that we recommend this book." Bound in red-brown cloth, spine slightly darkened, minor marks to covers, light spasmodic foxing, slightly stale and musty. An uncommon title from a golden period of Far Eastern travel. Good cond. regret no dustwrapper. 8 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches.

A brief quote from Chapter 1: "It was my good fortune to be wrong: being mistaken is the essence of the traveler's tale. What I had thought of as the simplest way of getting there--eight trains from London to the Chinese border--turned out to be odd and unexpected. Sometimes it seemed like real travel, full of those peculiar discoveries and satisfactions. But more often it was as if I had lost my footing in London and had fallen down a long flight of stairs, perhaps one of those endless staircases designed by a surrealist painter, and down I went, bump-bump-bump, and across the landing and down again, bump-bump-bump, until I had fallen halfway around the world."
