ANNO'S MEDIEVAL WORLD.
New York: Philomel Books, (1980.) Hardcover First Edition
First US printing. Text adapted from translation by Ursula Synge - a journey in poetic text and detailed paintings through the Middle Ages to the dawn of the Age of Reason. The softly colored, bordered illustrations enhance the 'medieval manuscript' aspect of the story. Originally published in Japan under the title of "Kuso Kobo' but in the author's note, Anno states that it could have been called 'How people living in the era of the Ptolemaic Theory saw their world.' Includes a chronology and notes. Unpaginated. Fine in illustrated boards in a very good dust jacket (price-clipped, minor edgewear to dj) .ISBN # 0-399-207422
