Availability: Out of stock

Various/Unknown Photographers. "Seikimatsu ero shashin-kan" - "Fin de Siecle Erotic Photography." Koshi SHIMOKAWA, Koji KAWAMOTO, Ishiya SAIDA, Takao OKAMURA, editors. Japan: Seikyusha, 1996, First Edition, HB, dj, 19 cm x 13 cm, 161 pp, b/w photos, text in Japanese.

The second of two books edited by Shimokawa on early erotic photography. A fascinating collection of erotica from the early years of photography. Text is in Japanese but there are still 100+ full page images. Includes both European/Western and Japanese artist/models - including geisha from the 19th century and South Sea beauties in native dress (and undress). There are four main sections of photographs all dating from the late 1800's and the turn of the century - 1) Japanese Erotica featuring Geisha and Courtesans; 2) European Erotica featuring mostly French models with some exotic models as well; 3) Outdoor naturists and athletes (Western); and 4) I guess what you could say were the Bourboulon/Hamilton/Sturges style photos of the time.
