international photographic annual by the Japanese publisher
Arusu Shuppan Shu (ARS Publishing), Tokyo. This publication
showcases the works of world's leading photographers.
This includes: Alfred
Platt Lynes, Bernice
Steichen, and Cecil
Beaton to name a few. There is also a whole section
Henle taking up six pages that includes several
of his images taken in Japan. Printed
in photogravure, this book contains 128 pages of photographs
and 43 pages of Japanese text, and several pages of
photographic advertisements front and back.
Condition: contents are very clean
copy but the cover is a little worn. There is also
some foxing spots on the reverse of the title page
due to the gatefold pullout advertisment that is in
direct contact with it. A few of the pages are inscribed
with camera exposure notes from the original owner
who also signed his name opposite the colophon. Overall
this is a good copy.
