1. Hard-Boiled Wonderland (Japanese)

Book: Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World
Haruki Murakami
First edition (June 15, 1985), in Japanese
Fine, with box and publisher's wraparound band, as issued, and publisher's promotional material laid in.

I have sold several copies of this, and do not currently have one in stock, but if you e-mail me I may be able to get hold of it. A copy in similar condition would be priced at around

2. Dance Dance Dance in English, with obi


This is the first printing, in English, of Haruki Murakami's Dance Dance Dance. It is a fine copy, with an unusual bonus - the scarce  obi (= publisher's wraparound band), issued only with copies distributed in Japan. Since the Japanese edition was issued without a wraparound band, a copy of this book with a band is quite a collectors' piece!

As the pictures show, the book and dust jacket are in fine condition. There is some wear to the wraparound band, which has small chips and tears (please check the close-up pictures), but it hardly matters, since you are unlikely to see another one.
