This is a FIRST EDITION published by NIPPON YUSEN KAISHA....the Japanese Mail Steamship Line (NYK). The publication date is 1899 and the Printers are John Andrews & Co, Sydney.The book was produced "for the information of intending passengers to Japan".
The book is a small pocket size of 7 1/2" x 5" and is complete but the cover and to page 6 is separated from the rest of the book, as is the back cover and last couple of pages. The spine cover piece is missing.
In general the condition is really very good....some discoloration or spot stains here and there but most pages are excellent and there is no foxing present.
A great insight into the Japan of 1899....many pictures plus maps.
