NIPPO 50th Anniversary Commemorative Manuscript

This monster of a book comes in 2 parts and was published to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the founding of NIPPO (the Japanese Dog Preservation Society). It contains everything NIPPO published from 1932-1978, including breed histories, standards, show results, pictures of winners etc. It's extremely hard to find now as it's long out of print. Brad Anderson of Yamabushi Kennel has what is probably one of the only copies in North America, and it is probably one of the only copies to be found outside of Japan.

If anyone's interested in owning a copy, feel free to contact me at kato.the.walrus@gmail.com and I'll figure out how much the shipping etc will cost. I've found a few copies of this, and then tend to cost around 15,000 yen + shipping.

I've always got my eyes peeled for copies of this book, so if anyone is interested, contact me and I'll let you know when a copy becomes available.
