Detailed Product Description



Tokyo, 1984, 2nd edition. 759 pp. In English and Japanese. This large format green cloth colored hardcover is new in the original slipcase. It still has the original clear plastic dust jacket, and the publisher's printed slipcase box has the original wrap-around band with blurbs in Japanese printed on it. The previous owner wrote his name neatly on the endpaper, and he also dated it: July 1984! So clearly he bought this copy new direct from the publisher, and other than the day he signed his name, it has never been out of it's slipcase for 36 years until today (July 30, 2020) so I could write this description!

This is a heavy, large format book. Extra postage will be requested for Media Mail, Priority Mail and International Mail.

This is my bible - a valuable reference for Himalayan books. For example today we are listing a Japanese book that says K2 8611 on the cover, and nothing else in English, not even the year. Using this Yakushi reference book I was able to identify the author, the actual title (The Way To Chogori), the year 1982 and even who, how and when the team climbed K2. Other books and websites will give me more information on the climb, because this is K2, not Fuji!

Yakushi lists 4607 books on the Himalaya, including all languages, with a cross reference for titles and subjects. 3,752 book entries are in English and European languages, and 855 in Japanese, with a good English translation of all Japanese entries. A truly superb reference for collectors and dealers. These 4607 entries are all relating to books on the Himalayas, together with Tibet and Central Asia, the range east to Yunnan and Upper Burma and to the west to the Karakoram, the Hindu Kush, the Tien Shan and the Pamirs.  Even though this edition ends in year 1984, it does include all the classic books of early exploration of the Himalaya and Karakoram and Tibet.

There was a third edition of Yakushi about 20 years ago, but due to the exchange rate fluctuation it had an American price of close to $1000, so nobody bought it. After all, what most of us need the book for are the older titles, and they are all in this second edition.
