Kose, Y. and Iwata, K  
A Study of English Grammar

Publisher: 1959.
Very Good with no dust jacket; Back cover has a scratch across the middle, and spine and edges are chipped. Otherwise in condition, with decorative blue cover. The name "Obunsha" is embossed into the spine, and front and back covers. Obunsha (?) Hardcover 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 508 pages; This is written in Japanese for Japanese speaking people who are trying to study English grammar. FRom the English parts, I can determine it is a thorough study. But I can't be sure that the publisher information above is correct; it is all I could find in English that appears to be a publisher and date. I determined the publication date from the date of the Introduction.
