Karate Goju-Ryu by the Cat
International Karate-Do Goju-kai, Tokyo. 1966, First Edition. Hardcover, with dust jacket. 296 pages (complete). A VERY, VERY RARE copy of this autobiography of the great Gogen Yamaguchi, "The Cat". Yamaguchi was a household name for many, many years, in Japan and any place where Karate was practiced. The dustjacket is much worn, torn, scuffed. It is however, intact and concerted. The cover is glorious. It is covered with blue woven cloth, with gilt Japanese script. Other than very light shelving wear to the corners, the covers are very appealing. The front and end papers are of woven paper. These are neat and tidy. The early pages have some storage rubbing, wear and marks. Beyond these the pages are comfortable, clean, clear, benevolent, diligent, personal, very pleasing. A happy copy. fk. Very Good/Poor.
