Just prior to the recent London convention, my visit to the SL Moss Gallery coincided with the delivery of the long awaited Kokusai thesis by Paul Moss .... signed " Copy number 1, first out of the box! "

Excellent, Gopi!
1st copy, 1st edition, and author autographed.
A Keeper.

Any news on when we may expect vols. 1&3 of the SL Moss, Ltd. Stag Treatise?
I'm sure that all at 12 Queen St., Mayfair are enjoying a well-deserved period of rest & recuperation after their London event earlier this month, coordinated with their once in a lifetime, three-floor, Kokusai Exhibition & launch of vol. 2, 'Kokusai The Genius,' the largest single volume treatise on one carver (600-odd pieces!).

Just received a whole 'library' of books on the subject of Netsuke. The most interesting item: the first edition of 'Netsuke' by F.M. Jonas, printed in 1928, and signed by the author (with dedication to Admiral Sir Howard Kelly):
