The leaves are yellowed, but not brittle. Originally published in three volumes, this combined edition describes everything a Westerner may want to know about his Japanese hosts, including a history of the Japanese flag, Japanese heroes, arts, poetry, superstitions, customs, festival, religions, drama and theatre, sports and games, flowers, names of the years (Year of the Rat, etc.), fine arts and porcelains, industry, clothing, rickshaws, and much, much more.
