I've owned this book for a about 20 years or longer?
I think I bought it as a xmas or birthday treat for myself.
Its an excellent work on Japanese Art showing the use of Animal Themes in several media, ceramics decoration, lacquer, and several styles of painting.
I can highly recommend it as one worthwhile hunting down a second hand copy of on amazon or elsewhere.
The author is Harold P. Stern and it was published by Abrams in 1976.
