Illustrated Camera Catalogue Kimbei Photo Studio

[Japan] Very scarce catalogue of the latest camera and accessories available in Japan in 1906. The very modern cover design shows two women and two men in a car with the lady in the front passenger seat holding a camera. There were very few cars in Japan in 1906 so Kimbei obviously wanted to show how modern his products were. The catalogue contains numerous cameras, from pocket Kodaks to stereo cameras, box brownies, and large models up to 230 yen which was a huge sum in 1906. Kusakabe Kimbei (1841-1934) was one of Japan's most successful photographers and, later, photographic equipment dealers.
