About this Item: 1954. [PHOTOGRAPHY] KIMURA Sohachi, text SUZUKI Yoshikazu. GINZA KAIWAI GINZA HATCHO. Tokyo, Toho Shobo, Square 8vo., 2 volumes. Important and well known early postwar essay and photo-essay together. The text, embellished with woodblock prints and halftone illustrations, traces the history of the upscale Ginza shopping district, back to the beginning of the city of Edo [Tokyo]. It was written by Kimura, a very important visual artist and essayist of the time. The photoessay is remarkably similar to Ruscha's famous EVERY BUILDING ON THE SUNSET STRIP, which he published some 12 years later. Photographed by Suzuki Yoshikazu, I would find it hard to believe that it did not provide the inspiration for Ruscha's later work. The buildings on the Ginza frame the conceptual "road" that lies between the two sides of the street, much as the buildings on the banks frame the river in Hokusai's iconic "Sumidagawa Ryogan Ichiran". Complete, the text in its slipcase and both volumes enclosed in the original shipping box with title label. The outer box is worn, with a bit of foxing, as usual, very good overall. Complete, as issued. Seller Inventory # 89730

About this Item: Tokyo, Japan: Toho-Shuppan Publishing, 1954. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 364 pages. Published in 1954. Artist Book. Two-volume book on subject. One of the greatest collectible book discoveries of our time. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run in this unique format only. There is no ISBN. The First Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Toho-Shuppan: Boxed Set consisting of two volumes, both of which are encased in the publisher's original cardboard box. Volume One, "Ginza Kaiwai", is a book-length account on the world-famous Tokyo district. The text by Kimura Shohachi is interspersed with "ukiyo-e" woodblock print reproductions by Hiroshige, black-and-white photographs by Yoshikatsu Kanno, maps, and reproductions of original drawings. Publisher's original promotional leaflet laid-in. Publisher's original rice-paper-wrapped slipcase with pictorial labels pasted in front and on the spine. In publisher's original rice-paper DJ, as issued. Volume Two, "Ginza Haccho", consists of Yoshikazu Suzuki's photographic re-construction of Ginza in an accordion foldout format. A marvel of publishing ingenuity: Two continuous plates present Every Building On Ginza Street, one across the top, the other across the bottom, with text in the center. The accordion is encased in pale green hard boards with red titles in front. Without DJ, as issued. Presents "Ginza Kaiwai/Ginza Haccho". Masterpiece. Ostensibly, the precursor of Ed Ruscha's "Every Building On The Sunset Strip" (1966). "Ginza Kaiwai/Ginza Haccho" is first of all, two books, both of them realized to the superior standards that one has come to expect of Japanese publishing. Second, the concept and realization of "Ginza Haccho" is the same as Ed Ruscha's most celebrated Artist Book, except that the former precedes the latter by thirteen years. Calling "Ginza Haccho" the "Japanese Every Building On The Sunset Strip", as some commentators have done, is racist, and the appellation suggests that "Ginza Haccho" followed rather than preceded Ruscha. Whether Ruscha was aware of "Ginza Haccho" or not is irrelevant. Yoshikazu Suzuki did it first, brilliantly so, and just as important, its precedence does not in any way diminish Ed Ruscha's achievement either. An absolute "must-have" title for Yoshikazu Suzuki, photography, and Artist Book collectors. This title is a great book. This is one of very few copies of the First Edition/First Printing still available online, is enclosed in a hand-made ("bespoke") protective black cloth slipcase for posterity, and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. It is, quite simply, the single most beautiful copy we have ever seen. Please note: The few copies that have turned up online all have serious flaws (heavy foxing, staining, soiling, and wear as well as intrusive repairs). As collectors realize the importance of "Ginza Kaiwai/Ginza Haccho" in the history of modern book-making, its value will increase accordingly. A rare copy thus. One of the greatest Artist Books of our time. A fine collectible copy. no. Seller Inventory # 15563
