Leaning towards allocating the funds for this. I’m not an Asia guy, but what it is is worth the cost, given CH’s ballpark. Any personal library should have some general reference in areas outside the main interest, and this certainly qualifies. I’d have grabbed the standard CUP set of I’d seen it at a second hand book store or fair. But the quality CH is hitting now tips it over. The execution matches the exhaustive scholarship. A gorgeous piece of collector book art and a research standard.

I can’t think of any collector-oriented prestige publisher producing this kind of scholarly content. Easy to see why CUP perceived value in the arrangement once they saw what you’re capable of. It’s a unique niche on both sides. I’ve generally been a collector of content over object, though CH has won me over. A comprehensive authoritative Japan survey that covers off that content and adds that kind of class to the library is the best of both worlds.

Two months late to this and just came across your wonderful company. I am seriously interested in this upcoming series publication and don’t really understand how I would subscribe to this specifically. Would the books be available in a subscription through Arkhaven as a standalone offer for the 9 volumes?

That sounds extraordinary! (Though there's no way I'd ever be able to afford it.)
