None in front or back. Its a limited 5000 leather bound issue. Looks like printed in china for us market. I did research before order and theres a non badged non leather edition . A leather chrome badge version and the black chrome badge version ( i think lol) 

just kept checking ebay , theres usually some on there at varying prices.

this is all the info pages......

Possibly never intended for sale? Like a inhouse gift book or something? 

Bottom of page .... library of congress no.... us market only?

Not sure. When i looked up lexus books all i ever found was this one and the pursuit of perfection story. That had little pictures and was a bit heavy going, but still interesting.

I agree, heavy read unless you have a LS400. I found it very informative. Not sure a car of today would go through the research and testing that went into the 400. They are very special cars.

Agreed, its helps if you have an interest in the ls400 as thats where most of the storys based. I did find it an iteresting read particulary how dealers were set up and the way lexus affected the other brands. Prob never read again but nice to have and its the usual lexus quality piece.
