MENPES, Mortimer & Dorothy. Japan. A Record in Colour. London, Adam & Charles Black, [1901].

4to. Original eggshell cloth, lettered in gilt, decorated in green and red, top edge gilt; pp. [iii]-xiv 206, [2], 100 coloured plates, captioned tissue guard to each; cloth with light marking and a little wear to lower edge of front cover, a little offsetting from endpapers, light embrowning to tissue-guards, but otherwise a clean copy.
Edition deluxe, limited to 600, this being a special copy, without half-title and numbering, but with original watercolour by Menpes on title-page, presented and signed by him to one J. W. Jones. Inman notes that the first 100 copies were numbered and merely signed. The absence of the half-title, which had the limitation and numbering on the verso has been removed to make this a copy outside the numbered and signed 100 copies.
