Dear all,
Apologies in advance for this rather inexact enquiry...
I was wondering if anyone could tell me where I might be able to locate a copy of a big green hardback book called something like Nippon Eiga Kantoku Zenshu. This may not be the exact title as I think this was the title of an earlier, equivalent book, published in the seventies. The book I am talking about includes filmographies and biographical/critical detail in Japanese about important Japanese filmmakers, and is part of a series also include red and blue hardback books about Japanese actors and actresses.
I saw this book in bookshops in Tokyo in 2003, but when I tried to buy it in 2004, it had gone out of print. I wonder if there are any websites where one can search for second-hand or remaindered Japanese books. Being currently based in London, I have presently no means of entering kana or kanji into a search engine, but we will cross that bridge when we come to it... 
So the basic questions are 1) does anyone know what this book is actually called, and 2) does anyone know where I can get it!
