    This is another curious collection of images, cut out from an unknown publication that had presumably been remaindered. To the best of my knowledge there was no organization called Bijutsu Shashin Kenkyukai [Fine Art Photography Research Society]. But it includes an interesting image by the otherwise elusive Hanaya Kambei. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
