"Personally, I experience the greatest degree of pleasure in having contact with works of art.

They furnish me with happy feelings of an intensity such as I cannot derive from other realms."

 'In Search of Netsuke and Inro' by George Cohen. Published by John Neville Cohen


In Search of Netsuke & Inro
George A Cohen

With a Forward by Douglas J. K. Wright

An important private collection consisting of 280 selected netsuke in ivory and wood together with 76 choice inro all complete with ojime and netsuke - as well as several fine lacquer boxes, are all individually described.

The connoisseur will appreciate the excellent work of several 18th century master carvers as well as that of more recent artists.

This book differs from most other studies, as it is not purely technical, although it contains useful and practical information.

In the hope of attracting new enthusiasts the author has written an entertaining account of his personal experiences in forming this collection, relating many amusing incidents as well as describing the pleasure and satisfaction to be enjoyed by those who collect these elusive miniatures of Japanese art.

This rare book (now out of print) was published in the UK by 'The Jacey Group of Companies' in 1974.  ISBN 9780950410500

This complete reference work is now available here.
