Looking for Japan Residents for help

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm looking for folks who live in Japan. I'm trying to track down the publishing company of a book and if possible a copy of the book.

 

The title is Kumihimo no Sekai, çµ„ç´ ã® ä¸–ç•Œ, and was published in 1976 and seems to have gone out of print the same year. According to Wordcat the publisher is Zenkoku KyoÌ„iku SangyoÌ„ KyoÌ„kai Shuppan Kyoku but searches and searches of the translation doesn't lead to much. The OCLC number is 41731379, if that helps.

 

I can borrow a copy from the University of Montana but I want to try and get my own copy and if possible get in touch with the publisher.

 

Thanks

Nakos

I know someone who GOES to Japan, but no one who lives there now.  If I remember next time they visit, I'll have them look into this for you.

Book Off might have a copy, but something that old would be hard to find, I imagine. I'm a year and more for my next trip there, so won't be much help.

This might be a challenge to findã€although it looks like one was sold on Yahoo Auction not long ago(May), so it is possible.

 

I'm sure you've seen the new edition from 1988?  This one is still available from Amazon Japan, but the publisher is kodansha international, (組ç´+ã®+世界]æ–°ã—ã„組ç´ã®ä¸–ç•Œ), and not å…¨å›½æ•™è‚²ç”£æ¥­å”会出版局.

 

I'll check with my family in Japan, but I can't guarantee you a timely response :)

I like Powell's Books out in Portland.  They have an amazing selection of everything.  You can also have yourself put on alert for used books.  Might be worth a shot.  It should be the first result when you google.
