The Tale of Genji. Translated by Royall Tyler [2 volumes boxed]

New York: Viking Press / Viking Penguin, 2001. Hardcover. American first edition of this translation: xxix, 574, 577-1174p., illustrated with numerous line-drawn vignettes; two 9x6 inch casebound books in matching red cloth covers, enclosed in a well-fitting slipcase. Expect a very few minute white and black flecks at the tops of the cloth spine and several to top edge near the headbands; possibly flicked in the bindery. The books are otherwise immaculate and appear never to have been opened. The slipcase has a small bump at one tail-corner with a tiny tear, and an even smaller bump at the opposite top corner, but remains quite sound and is perfectly presentable.
