Tokyo 1936. Photographs by Kineo Kuwabara. Texts by Takuma Nakahira, Nobuyoshi Araki, Shotaro Ikenami, Shinichi Uekusa, Nobuhiko Kobayashi and others. Shobunsha, Tokyo, 1974. 258 pp. Quarto (10 x 7 in./25.6 x 18 cm.) First edition. SIGNED in Kanji on title page. Clothbound with printed label. Cardboard slipcase with printed labels. Gravure reproductions.

Highly recommended!! Included in Ivan Vartanian & Ryuichi Kaneko, Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and 1970s.

A hugely influential mid-seventies classic that evokes a nostalgic warmth for pre-war Tokyo. In both its subject matter (most of the photos were taken in 1936-1937) and design, Kuwabara’s book is a paean to a long lost Tokyo. As Shiroyasu Suzuki, one of the writers, says, "I am not looking at Kuwabara's photographs; rather, the me that exists in my memory is once more brought to life." A rare signed copy!

Fine- in about Fine slipcase; light foxing to page edges; light wear to extremities and some faint foxing to labels.
