CATALOGUE - PRINTED PHOTOGRAPH MOUNTS. ASANUMA SHOKAI. - [Shashin Daishi Teika-hyo].

 1515754498,
n.p. Asanuma Shokai 1903 (Meiji 36). 18x23cm publisher's decorated wrapper; [8]pp and 12 pages of illustrated examples in various monochromes. A nice copy. ¶ A mountain of printed and most decorative mounts for studio photographs were produced but this is the first catalogue of them I've seen. Most of these appear to be actual examples produced for photographers in Japan, Hong Kong, China and maybe Manchuria - judging by the Russian type. As an example of maybe a dim corner of photographic history - I don't know enough to judge - this is pretty good but as an example of a dark corner of graphic design and commercial printing this is fabulous. The last plate is an array of decorative borders.
