2 Samkange, Stanlake African Saga: a Brief Introduction to African History
0687009537 / 9780687009534; This is not only a brief introduction to African history, but an attempt to correct some of the misconceptions held about the continent and its people. Whether or not one agrees with some of the author's opinions, one will find this an easy-to-read, informative overview of the subject. Until very recently it was assumed and perpetuated through histories that the only history of Africa is that of the white man. Here is a chance to read in a popular style the fascinating African story as seen through the eyes and viewpoints of a distinguished black historian. The binding is tight with several creases on the spine. The last half of the book has light pencil underlining and notes - easily erased. The FFEP has a name in light pencil and the original price is included with a light stamp. Writer's notes are at the end of each chapter; a bibliography and index are included. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall

3 Statler, Oliver Japanese Inn, a Reconstruction of the Past
This is a book written through the long-standing calm and historic Minaguchi-ya, an inconspicuous rural inn. Oliver Statler spent several years in Japan, came to love it, and considered this inn it's most historic place of calm and beauty, stubbornly holding on to the old ways of Japan. This is a book of the social history of Japan through 400 years, closely researched with many interviews. It is enhanced by 50 prints, many of them Hiroshige (including the jacket) . The page tops are stained blue. The jacket has minor repaired tears at the top (less than 1/8") but is chipped at the top spine end, and lightly worn at the bottom. The spine is sunned, but when removed from the book and opened, the entire print of the jacket becomes visible, and is in a protective cover. Price clipped. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
