MATSUGI, Fujio. Kaigun Heigakko. Hodo Shashinshu. 134 pp. Illustrated with photographs throughout. Folio., bound in cloth in publisher's dust wrapper and illustrated slipcase. Tokyo: Bancho Shobo, 1943.
An typical example of one of the photobooks produced by Matsugi, who was a prominent photographer in prewar Japan. This book documents the training of Naval cadets during the early 40s and is one of the best examples of so-called 'news-photography' (hodo shashin) in the
'patriotic' vein. A superb copy in the dustwrapper and slipcase.
