Gorgeous soft-cover book measuring 5 3/4" x 8 3/4", printed entirely in Japanese on extremely lightweight paper, almost as thin as tissue.  One of the interior pages includes an illustration of a baseball scene.  Gorgeous typography and lettering throughout, an extremely delicate book but entirely intact, the paper so soft and heavily wrinkled it almost appears to be cloth.  A beautiful piece.
