Kon Wajiro, Yoshida Kenkichi & Modernology. - [Yanagiya - dai 42].

Osaka, Yanagiya March 1931. 23x15cm publisher's illustrated wrapper; 60pp, a few small illustrations. Signs of use but decent. ¶ This is an issue of the obscure and clearly serious Osaka magazine Yanagiya devoted to some extent to the first volume of Modernology, published in 1930. Kon's thesis - born out of watching the people of Tokyo begin to rebuild after the 1923 earthquake and fire - is that those who do the planning, designing and official building know nothing of what people actually do, what they own and how they use those things - how they live and who they are.
