"Japan Photographic Annual 1927-1928" Asahi Shinbun Photobook Anthology


Availability: Out of stock

"Japan Photographic Annual 1927-1928: the Fourth Year Edition." Japan: Asahi Shinbun Publishing Co., Ltd., 1928, First Edition, PB, no dj as issued, 26 cm x 19 cm, 112 duo-tone photos, 5 of which are tipped-in, 164 pp of text with additional pages of advertisements, English & Japanese text.

An exceedingly rare book - a fascinating collection from the early years of photography in Japan. Photos are grouped in "Two Color Halftones," "Halftones," and "Photogravure."

Condition: Quite Good. The paper edges of the cover are folded over and worn. There are various occasional foxing spots throughout, though not very many within the actual images - the photo pages are printed on a glossier style paper which doesn't attract the moisture as much as the text pages. The book binding is holding together nicely and the interior pages are clean. Probably one of the best existing copies, considering it's age and fragile construction.
