MORSE, Edward S. JAPAN DAY BY DAY: 1877, 1878-79, 1882-83. Boston: Mifflin Company, Cambridge: The University Press, 1917. First edition. Two volumes: xiv, , 441; , 453 pp. Illustrated with a color frontispiece in each volume and throughout with many b&w text illustrations by the author. Large 8vo., grey pictorial cloth, t.e.g. An almost perfect set both volumes still have the original publisher's dust-jackets. The jackets have a small bit of loss at crowns and edges and are faded on the spines Always a desirable title, this copy is especially interesting due of the presence of both original jackets and the heretofore unseen slipcase. Rare thus.
