Hello! I usually post jobs for the companies I work with, but this one is for a friend's personal hobby. She is interested in Japanese beauty, diet, and skin care and heard of an excellent old book on the subject. I found this book for her at several libraries, but she wants to buy it if possible.

We would like to hire someone who can do the following:

1. Find the book to buy, or find it at a library near you. If it is only available at a library near you, make careful photocopies or scans of all the pages.
2. Translate the book from Japanese to English.

A screenshot of the book's title in Japanese is attached. Also, here is a link of the book - we found it at two American libraries, but we are nowhere near them:   [obscured]  /NKWcuB

Thank you!

I think I just found it at this library in Japan, too:   [obscured]  /Qo9Lop
