Long-necked ghosts, slashing samurais, decapitated mothers, excited school girls, camellias, chrysanthemums, and blowing leaves - all coming together in an eroguro vision unique to Toshio Saeki. The original first edition printed in 1972, there are 51 prints - each stretches across two pages and has a limited color palette.

EU Condition ($100): Not very good! Book is cracked at lower corner of binding edge. Seems as if it was dropped and landed on the corner. Binding is not super tight anymore. About a 1" border of water damage/shadow on lower edge but the pages remain flat. Fairly heavy color transfer/shadow from page to page. Cardboard sleeve has color loss, crack in lower left corner, and a 2-3" water damage/shadow. Please view pictures here.
US Condition ($250): Good condition considering age. Cardboard sleeve is in fair condition - structure is intact but wear, color loss, and several irregularities (shown in first photo). Book shows some shelf wear on edges. Some age spots and irregularities. Interior pages have some color transfer of prints from page to page - like a shadow from the facing page (see last photo). Binding has come loose from book cover but pages are holding together. Could easily be repaired.
