A COLLECTOR’S GUIDE TO BOOKS ON JAPAN IN ENGLISH: An Annotated List of over 2,500 Titles with Subject Index, by Joseph Rogala. Richmond, Surrey: Curzon Press, Ltd., 2001. 292 pp., 15.99 UK pounds.

The book’s title says precisely what it is. It is not a listing of ‘best’ books on Japan, nor a catalog of what is currently available. Rather, it is a guide for serious amateurs, those who for reasons of sentiment or profit wish to discover collectors’ items in the field.
