 1969. I like this book because it is dedicated to PEACE. Red cloth covers with embossed bonsai on front and black cloth spine. Minor edgewear at corners. Dust jacket has fared far less well, with scuffing and some small closed tears and chips. Inside, many B&W photos illustrated technique and finished result. Set of eight color plates show finished designs, many with a strikingly oriental flare. Inside book is clean, unmarked and quite sturdy overall.
