Buddha by Osamu Tezuka. This is the English language release of Tezuka's classic manga that tells the story of the life of Buddha published by Vertical. This is volume 4, the Forest of Uruvela. This is one of the Hardcover releases and still has it's original OBI strip around it. There's some wear on the OBI, but the book is otherwise near mint. A great book and a a great way to complete your collection.Please note that most of the items we sell are vintage collectibles often more than a decade old so please expect some wear and discoloration. We will always try to note when these things are present or if something has survived in mint shape, but we want to make sure you're doubly aware. We're always happy to take additional pictures as well so please ask by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to see another angle or a specific aspect more clearly.
