Item Description: (Shueisha), (Tokyo), 1963. Hardcover. Book Condition: f to vg. Limited First edition. 1/1500. Folio. Original acetate jacket over decorative white and olive cloth, with blue and black lettering to spine. Book housed in its original photo-illustrated cardboard slipcase. Laid in, an explanatory booklet in English, French and German. Tissue-guarded limitation page signed in Japanese caligraphy by Eikoh Hosoe and Yukio Mishima."The [ten] photos that make up the body of the book are inky, sometimes high-contrast gravures that bleed right to the edge of the page and often extend across the entire open spread, giving extra impact to images that are already quite arresting. Even if the subject of Hosoe's photographs weren't the author Yukio Mishima, the book would be remarkable for its humid mix of eroticism and myth, queer kitsch and high art. But Mishima, Japan's most celebrated and controversial modern novelist, was also a brilliant provocateur and his presence here turns "Killed By Roses" into a charged collaboration between artists testing one another's limits? [Hosoe's] first meeting with Mishima, in September 1961, was at the writer's house. That first day, Mishima, already dressed only in a loincloth, ended up wrapped in a garden hose and standing on the marble mosaic zodiac on his lawn. The resulting surreal images are among the book's most famous; though Hosoe saw them as 'the destruction of a myth'? Mishima['s] ritual suicide in 1970 was seen as his final artistic act" (Andrew Roth: "The Book of 101 Books," page 164). One of 1500 copies, of which this is No. 1085.Cardboard slipcase heavily rubbed along edges. 8 1/2" closed tear at back cover of acetate jacket. Text and photographs clean and fine. Explanatory booklet in English, French and German. Slipcase in overall fair, dust-jacket in good- to good, binding and interior in very good condition. * Eikoh Hosoe (born in 1933) is a Japanese photographer and filmmaker who emerged in the experimental arts movement of post-World War II Japan. He is known for his psychologically charged images, often exploring subjects such as death, erotic obsession, and irrationality. Through his friendships and artistic collaborations he is linked with the writer Yukio Mishima and 1960s avant-garde artists such as the dancer Tatsumi Hijikata. ** Yukio Mishima, the pen name of Kimitake Hiraoka (1925-1970), was a Japanese author, poet, playwright, actor, and film director. Mishima is considered one of the most important Japanese authors of the 20th century. He was considered for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1968 but the award went to his fellow countryman Yasunari Kawabata. His works include the novels "Confessions of a Mask" and "The Temple of the Golden Pavilion," and the autobiographical essay "Sun and Steel." His avant-garde work displayed a blending of modern and traditional aesthetics that broke cultural boundaries, with a focus on sexuality, death, and political change. Mishima was active as a nationalist and founded his own right-wing militia. He is remembered for his ritual suicide by seppuku after a failed coup d'état attempt, known as the "Mishima Incident". The Mishima Prize was established in 1988 to honor his life and works. Bookseller Inventory # 40704

Item Description: Shueisha (Lumen), Tokyo, 1963. Encuadernación de tapa dura. Book Condition: Bien. Dust Jacket Condition: Bien. 1ª Edición. Primera edición, edición original, firma manuscrita en papel rojo de seda, por Mishima  y el fotógrafo Eikoh Hosoe. Tirada mundial de 1500 ejemplares (el nuestro núm. 598). Tamaño Gran folio. 43 fotografías en b y n, 4 ilustraciones en papel de Arroz, dos fotografías desplegables. Cuadernillo  grapado impreso con la traducción del texto de Mishima en castellano. Sólo, lógicamente, lo poseen los ejemplares que distribuyó Lumen en España. En este cuaderno la editora Esther Tusquets explica la gran expectación que produjo Barakei= killed by Roses cuando fue presentado en la Feria de Frankfurt. En seguida se propuso adquirir unos cuantos ejemplares para traerlos a España y distribuirlos en Lumen (sin concretar qué cantidad). Son pues estos ejemplares  de Muerte por la Rosas, escasos en edición española, pero es mérito de la editorial Lumen haber presentado algunos de los grandes fotolibros del Siglo XX  en el ámbito hispánico. Éste, Barakei, sin lugar a dudas lo es. (The Photobook: A History/ Parr; Badger 280-281.) El estado del libro es excelente y la impresión es de una suntuosidad rara vez vista en libros de la segunda mitad del Siglo XX. Las tintas y el papel así como la calidad artística de Hosoe como fotógrafo, hacen de este libro, un libro de artista. La encuadernación en tela de dos colores y el interior en perfecto estado, protegido por la funda camisa de editorial en acetato. Lo único reseñable se ve en las ilustraciones de las páginas de arroz que presentan unas manchas amarillentas (posiblemente por la acidez de las colas de la encuadernación). Las fotografías, en perfecto estado, no presentan ningún rastro de ello. Además se conserva  el estuche en cartón de la edición japonesa; con algunas señales de uso y desgaste sobre todo en una de las caras y alguna abolladura. Una pegatina de Lumen fue añadida ¿Muerto por las Rosas¿ así como el libreto grapado rojo arriba mencionado; sobre esa cubierta no sabría decir si ese es el aspecto rojo desvaído de origen o el papel rojo ha sufrido algún percance justo en el centro. En todo caso el libro está completo y en excelente estado y mínimos defectos en los anexos. Firmado por el autor. Bookseller Inventory # 000446

Item Description: Tokyo: Shueisha, 1963. First Edition. Folio. 43 black and white photographs, 4 color illustrations on vellum, 2 gatefolds. Number 91 of 1500 press-numbered copies, SIGNED by Hosoe and Mishima, and additionally INSCRIBED in silver marker by Hosoe to a collector. Arguably the most famous Japanese photobook of the 20th century. Writer Yukio Mishima is the model for Hosoe's lavish surreal production; his collaboration in the project pushed Hosoe's artistic talents to the brink, creating a final document that transcends the inherent limitations of book arts. (Parr / Badger, v1, 280-281; Roth 164-165; Open Book 194-195; Auer 422). Top of the text block gently bumped, else near fine in illustrated cloth boards in near fine example of the publisher's plain acetate jacket; housed in the publisher's distinctive black printed slipcase, with light wear and rubbing, especially along the bottom edge. Nice copy of a book usually encountered in subpar condition. Bookseller Inventory # 22025
