Box of ancient mutant asagao books

While in Japan in 2009, I had the good fortune and honor to meet Eiji Nitasaka, Ph.D., holder of the national morning glory seed collection located at Kyushu University. While there, he showed me some very ancient books of Edo Period asagao flower forms. He stores them in a safe place in his laboratory.
