Konsaisu Gaikoku Sanmei Jiten (A Concise Dictionary of Names of Foreign Mountains). Ichiro Yoshizawa. SanseidoPublishing Co., Tokyo, 1984. 613 pages, 55 sketch maps and line drawings, Hardbound.

Wholly in Japanese characters, this dictionary surveys peaks, mountain ranges and passes, covering their location, heights, coordinates and, when applicable, data of first ascent. The 59-page index in the Roman alphabet lists 9020 entries—a most remarkable piece of work.
