Item Description: Patoria Shoten, Tokyo, 1960. Paperback. First Edition. Uncommon first printing of this early Domon title, documenting the lives of children in Chikuho, a coal mining village in southern Japan. A cheaply-made book, rarely found in collectible condition; this copy perhaps a little better than typical. Shahn is known to have worked from Domon's photographs for his "Lucky Dragon" series (1960-62), and this, from Shahn's personal library, was likely one of the working sources for those paintings. Quarto (25.5 cm). Original pictorial wrappers; 95pp (chiefly illustrations). Small losses to upper and lower corners of front wrapper (ca. 1" and 1/4" respectively); text tanned as usual; Very Good. From the library of Ben and Bernarda Bryson Shahn, with estate label tipped on inside front cover. Bookseller Inventory # 14244

Item Description: Patria-shobo and Kenko-sha, 1960. Soft cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 'Ken Domon is widely regarded as Japan's leading photographer of the immediate post-war years: He worked in the classic photojournalistic mode, seeking to document Japanese life in the troubled aftermath of the war. During the 1950s, at a time when the rest of the Japanese economy was beginning to recover to prewar levels, the coal-mining areas of Chikuho and Kitakyushu, in the far south of Japan, suffered both from a population exodus and pit closures. Domon documented the effects of this drastic decline on the miners and their families in [these] two books. Both look at the plight of the district's children. He aimed to reach out to the broadest possible readership, thus he had the books printed cheaply, on rough paper, in the manner of a bound newspaper' (Parr & Badger, 274, 278) - - - - - - - - - Rare first Edition, first printing of both 'Children of Chikuho' with its sequel in the same year 'Rumie's Father is Dead' in nice collectible condition, individual description here - - - - - - - - - "Chikuho no Kodomotachi / Children of Chikuho" dated 25th January 1960, First edition, first printing, Publisher: Patria-shobo.

Item Description: 1972. First edition. 2 vols. Numerous photographic plates. Japanese text. Folio. Volume of plates in original decorated cloth, text-volume in original flexible boards, in decorated cloth slipcase, in cardboard box. A fine copy, signed by the photographer with his first name 'Ken' on a tipped-in sheet of washi paper. 125pp. Kyoto, Shishin-do, One of the most beautiful book-productions in post-war Japan and undoubtably another milestone in Domon's oeuvre. The art of Bunraku puppet plays was developed in the 17th century and supposedly reached the peak of it's popularity in the 18th century. It is a highly complex art form where wooden puppets are moved on a stage by one to three puppeteers to the accompanyment of a shamisen player and a narrator. The skill of the puppeteer lies in his ability to submerge his whole existence beneath the role of puppet, i.e. to become invisible. Lower ranking puppeteers (so-called 'black children' kuro-ko) wear black robes and masks to help them achieve that aim, but for a master of the art such artificial camouflage is unnecessary. Although first published in 1972, Domon had taken most of the images before the war. One of the most evocative photographs is the left hand of the Yoshida Bungoro (1869-1962), the most renowned master of bunraku during the 20th century. Clearly visible are the calluses that develop from the pressure of the control-mechanism on the thumb and middle finger. Many of the images are taken backstage. Exquisite book-design by Tanaka Ikko.
