This set of famous books was published between 1969 and 1975 by the Nihon Kiin. Long out of print and incredibly difficult to collect the full set. It was a long and difficult period of searching before I finally completed my set. Good luck if you are trying to get your own set.

  1. This page has been a big help in identifying which of the series I’ve found. I’m now up to 29 of the original 50. The pictures make it so much easier to distinguish between the books since quite a few of mine aren’t numbered.
