The wonderful world of netsuke: with one hundred masterpieces of miniature sculpture in color / by Raymond Bushell Bushell, Raymond [ Book: ] . Dating back to Japan’s Edo period (), netsuke sculptures are miniature ivory or wood carvings in the shape of animals, birds, and the like. Bushell collected these figurines while he was stationed in Japan with the Merchant Marines during World War II.

  I was recently at an auction that featured over netsuke from one person s collection, and the auction drew far more than its usual number of bidders. During the preview, I noticed several people examining pieces extremely carefully with high magnification lenses. Every piece sold, most for over $ and several going into the thousands.   This book opens the miniature world of netsuke to those who have hitherto been unaware of its existence. In a delightfully lucid manner, the basics of the netsuke are presented-definition, origin.
