I am auctioning a hardbound book titled Optical Fibers by Takanori
Okoshi and published by Academic Press  ISBN is 0-12-525260-9 on Ebay.
To the best of my knowledge it is no longer available in print.  I
purchased this book new, and it is still in as-new condition.  Copies
that are not in perfect condition are currently listed on
for $44.00 to $175.00.

The Ebay Link is:

An excerpt from the preface to the book reads "This book describes the
theoretical basis (electomagnetic theories) of transmission
characteristics of optical fibers.  The material and fabrication
technologies are not described systematically, but only briefly where
necessary to assist comprehension of transmission characteristics.
....... This book is entitled simply "Optical Fibers."  If a more
lengthy but descriptive title were preferable, it would be "Analysis
and Design of Optical Fibers"."
