Catalogues of the first and third Japan Photographic Art Exhibition held at the Daimaru Dry-Goods Store in Osaka in the first half of May and sponsored by the Osaka Mainichi and the Tokyo Nichinichi newspaper companies. Naturally most of the works originate from the Kansai area (Osaka, Kobe, Nagoya) but it also includes images by Fukuda Katsuji, Furukawa Narutoshi, and Takayama Masataka. The vignette on the cover of vol. 3 shows the 'Honourable Mention Medal'. It includes work by Yasui Nakaji, Yoshino Keiichiro, Horie Hiroshi, and Hirao Keiji. Very rare. No copy in OCLC.
