      I have no idea. The pages are uneven, but the typeset seems consistent. The page
      that seems to be removed is directly connected to the title page. The cut also
      cut through part of the content page, so I'm guessing a razor blade of some
      type. The only thing I can think that might be a reason, might be something of a
      personal note. The 45 is hand written in a style that reminds me of pen and ink
      well.


      I'm sorry I can't be of more help.

      There is a book plate in the front of the book with the name "Helen Biddle
      Griscom Bettle"

      Are you sure there ever *was* a copyright page?

      Does it look like it was printed modernly, or is it older? E.g. are
      all of the letters lined up correctly, or are there
      problems/smudges/etc.? Sewn binding--so it is open at both ends, or
      is it wrapped (I don't know the bookbinding terms here)? Does it
      appear to be late 20th C. or does the printing appear more like
      something you'd expect in the early 20th C or even late 19th C.

      Do you have pictures?

        Amazon.com has a somewhat cryptic listing as they don't actually have the thing in stock:
        http://www.amazon.com/Oriental-Japan-China-Vol-Marquis/dp/B00227B0A8/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1285432376&sr=1-1

        Publisher is listed as J.C. Millet with a publication date of 1900 and an ASIN# of B00227B0A8.

        Googling the ASIN did not help.

        Worldcat.org lists a number of titles by Ito, most in Japanese.

        For what it's worth.

          You can compare the physical description of their product to what you have. However, there is also an 8-vol Marquis Ito edition catalogued as well, also in a run of 160.

              A lot of old books are being reissued via POD technology, so you can get a cheapie paperback copy for $10/volume through abebooks. Not exactly the same as having morocco leather and gilt on your shelf, and the image quality is always a toss-up for those new reproductions, but you might find the volume that interests you the most and give it a shot. ^_^

                * A Tokugawa edition
                * And probably more. :oP The J.B. Millet Co. marketers were working hard that
                year. :o) Not that any of that's really relevant, but I did want to point out
                (a) that there are two different volume counts for the "Marquis Ito" edition;
                and (b) that there was a metric ton of "special limited editions" churned out in
                1901 and 1902.

                  Amazon.com has a somewhat cryptic listing as they don't actually have the thing
                  in stock:

                  http://www.amazon.com/Oriental-Japan-China-Vol-Marquis/dp/B00227B0A8/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1285432376&sr=1-1


                  Publisher is listed as J.C. Millet with a publication date of 1900 and an ASIN#
                  of B00227B0A8.


                  Googling the ASIN did not help.

                  Worldcat.org lists a number of titles by Ito, most in Japanese.

                  For what it's worth.
