Illustrated Japanese Book for the Self-Study of Photography  by Uchiki Bunzo

Illustrated Japanese Book for the Self-Study of Photography by Uchiki Bunzo

[Japan] Very scarce book on photography and how to take photographs. Illustrated throughout and with a lovely double-page, copperplate printed frontispiece as well as a fascinating title page in red with comical illustration of man with disproportionately long legs in the style of an image from a Hokusai manga. There doesn't appear to be a record of a photographer named Uchiki Bunzo, who edited the book, but one would assume he had some experience in photography.

 

Osaka. Wada Shozo (Wada Bunpodo). 1885.

 

70pp. 15 x 10cm.

 

In very good condition. Covers a bit worn with some marks and general age wear. Copperplate illustration has a mark at the lower right. Old stain affecting the rear cover and last couple of pages. Previous owner's name and Yamaguchi prefecture address on rear cover. b33050943
