About this Item: 1931. SHIMBUN, Mainichi. Kyoto Minka-Fu. [Book of Domestic Architecture and Traditional Houses in Kyoto and its Environs]. Two volumes. 26; 58 pp. Illustrated with 55 and 100 plates, respectively. 4to., 315 x 232 mm, bound loose as issued in the original printed cloth portfolios. Kyoto: Offices of Mainichi Shimbun, 1931-1934. A fine copy of this rare photographic survey of the architecture of Kyoto before the Second World War. The publication of this book was due to the realization made by two journalists 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 detailed photographs document the exteriors and interiors of over 150 private houses, merchant shops, manufacturing studios, and public buildings, many no longer extant. A handsomely produced book. Seller Inventory # 141640
