1928 Concise Standard Dictionary by Funk & Wagnalls with Jade Inset decoration. Good condition. Front board will need support in the near future.
This particular dictionary was bound for and sold by Yamanaka & Company, a prestigious international firm specializing in Asian art and antiquities (the Rockefellers were among their major clients). The book is bound in green goatskin on front and blue goatskin on back board, generously tooled in gold, and lined with silk doublures. Not atypically in a Yamanaka binding, a jade carving has been set into the front cover.
