"The Lady of Decoration" by Frances Little / Wakana Utigawa (ill)

Hodder & Stoughton, London - 1910 first illustrated edition - 212p, 18cmx15cm - condition: good, some wear to boards, 5 colored tipped-in plates incl. frontispiece present.

Rare title.

Her debut book The Lady of the Decoration was published in New York City in 1906 and would be her most successful work. The "Lady" rode the wave of American interest and support for Japan in the Russo-Japanese War, and supports the Japanese cause throughout. Set between 1901 and 1905, it is written in the form of letters home to a female friend or sister; it's not made clear. The main character is a young missionary kindergarten teacher in Hiroshima, Japan who before and during the Russo-Japanese War. She travels to Vladivostock, Russia just before the outbreak of the Russo-Japanese War and makes a number of critical observations. At the dawn of the 20th Century, most Americans knew very little of Japan, and Little's novel presented a view of Japanese life that captured the imagination of the reading public, who made it the No.1 bestselling novels in the United States for 1907.

    Très mauvaise expérience.
    . Livres abimés pas dans l'état indiqué
    En plus :
    . Frais d'expédition élevés mais envoi low cost pour une livraison fantaisiste
    . Attitude inadmissible du vendeur

    very unfair feedback; seller didn't read the advertisement closely as everything has been defined, made up claims to get out of it. He had to pick it up at the postal office since he never provided access code to his building so that the postal service was unable to deliver it to him

    Not well packed. Corners of the book were damaged. One could expect a book of around 250 euro to be shipped in a cardboard box with damping material, but the book was just in an envelope with bubbles
