The Oak Tree Press, London, 1996. Sterling Publishing, New York. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, pocket, barcode etc. Original bookseller's label inside cover. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD price-clipped dust jacket. Light-blue cloth-bound boards with dark-blue title to spine, illustrated title page, 112 b&w photographs, a few diagrams, and index. For centuries men have tried to fathom the secret of pearl oysters, and after years of exhausting experimentation, a group of Japanese men, working independently, found the method to make oysters produce pearls at their bidding. This book reveals, in text & photograph, how man's ingenuity and the lowly oyster have combined to form the only partnership which produces precious gems.
