Octavo (275 x 210mm). 24 photographic plates. Original card covers, spine lettered in black, original card slipcase with printed label on one side (text block detached, slipcase with some wear).
The first edition of 1922 is among the rarest Japanese photobooks. This second edition is also rare: ABPC records no copy sold at auction in over 30 years, and WorldCat locates copies in the USA only at Duke University and the Houston Hirsch Library, with apparently no copies in either France or the UK.
