This is the first and only volume that was issued in this series and it is remarkable both for the quality of printing as well as the selection of images. This publication was inspired by the Japan Photographic Annual as well as a German work entitled 'Das Deutsche Lichtbild', an annual that was first published in 1927. Includes work by the Fukuhara Brothers, Kondo Tatsuo, Horie Oto, Ishino Kyoichi, & Sugiyama Masaji, most of them amateurs who were influenced by the German trend called 'Neue Sachlichkeit' (New Objectivity). Rare. Two copies in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
