From the back cover:

"With a birthday in January, Clarence James Gamble was just fourteen years old in March of 1908, when he, his seventeen-year-old brother, Sidney, and his parents, David and Mary Gamble, left Cincinnati, Ohio, for a lengthy tour of the Orient that included ten weeks in Japan. Once there, Clarence and Sidney took many, many photos, a hundred and twenty of which have been left to posterity. Here is a glimpse into a Japan long lost, as seen by the travelling Gambles in 1908."
Price: $29.95
