This came into my possession recently and even though it looks abused and unusable it means a ton to me to have it in my collection. This piece is a small book detailing the operation and maintenance of the type 38 arisaka rifle and carbine. It also has several fold outs that show cutaway sections of each type 38 and a parts list for replacing damaged or missing parts. It was a heck of a find online and for only $40 it is a great piece to have as most Japanese paper objects like pamphlets and books were either destroyed at war's end or didn't survive the 70+ years of post war storage.

That IS quite a prize for a Jap collector! I'm surprised it looks that good! A visit to your local library or museum might be in order to find a good book conservator.
