About this Item: ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper.

About this Item: ??? (Benridô), ?? (Kyoto), 1934. Hardcover. Condition: g to vg. First edition. Folio (12 3/4 x 9 1/2"). 26 leaves (Text), 57 loose b/w plates (Vol. 1); 58pp (Text), 100 loose b/w plates (Vol. 2). Booklet and plates of each volume housed in its illustrated full-cloth portfolio with string ties. Rare photographic survey of pre-WWII Kyoto architecture, splendidly illustrated with 310 collotypes on 155 plates (two per plate). The publication of this two-volume set was due to the observation made by two journalists of the Koyto branch office of the "Osaka Mainichi Shinbun" newspaper that the vernacular and traditional architecture of the Kyoto region was rapidly disappearing. The work began as a series of newspaper articles, and was then collected and expanded into this published book format. The first volume was issued in 1931 and its sequel in 1934. Many of the structures depicts no longer exist. The first part has 110 black-and-white collotype photographs on 55 plates, and focuses on residential architecture. Among the houses showcased, are the private residences of architect Yosokichi Suzuka, ploitican Shozan Sakuma (??? ??), the Reizei family (??), as well as those of other prominent individuals including tea masters, artists and medical doctors. The second and last volume has 200 black-and-white collotypes on 100 plates, with a focus on commercial, industrial and other non-residential architecture. Among the subjects are various merchant shops, restaurants, teahouses, agricultural buildings, warehouses and manufacturing plants, including sake production facilities, and a military base for the historical Shinsengumi.Throughout the book, various classic components of the historic Kyoto architecture style are revealed including the "Unagi-no-nedoko" ("Eel's bed") style characterized by a narrow front facade, and a long deep extension away from the the street, Udatsu (structures meant to prevent fire from spreading from house to house), Degoushi (a wooden grill-like lattice over openings or windows to keep residents privacy) and Inuyarai (small street level fences). Each plate measures 12 3/8 x 9 1/4" The detailed photographs document the exteriors and interiors of over 150 private houses, merchant shops, manufacturing studios, and public buildings, many no longer extant. The plates in each part are accompanied by an elegant explanatory text booklet printed on rice paper. Portfolio of first volume darkened and age-toned along edges. Portfolio of second volume slightly age-toned along edges. Text in Japanese. Portfolios in overall good- to good (Volume 1) to good+ (Volume 2), interior in very good condition.
