Reviews - What do customers think about Netsuke. Band 1: 112 Meisterwerke / Masterpieces. The Trumpf Collection?

Great pics, awesome shipping time, but.....  Nov 30, 2007
I recently ordered this book for a friend (had it shipped to him) and I was amazed that it arrived in less than a week ( and this is Dec 1st and a Canadian address to boot). The book has great pics, but my friend is an artistic carver and likes to read about the artform since its historical. Seems simple enough.... the problem is that the BOOK IS IN GERMAN!!! Please, please, this site, indicate in the books description if its in another language. PS. Because the swine opened it(ordered wrapped) before xmas, hes being punished by the gift gods and will now have to go online to translate the German to English, so Im not heart broken over it. LOL Trent
