ASAHI SHIMBUNSHA. Asahi Graph. A collection of 109 Issues. Illustrated throughout with photographs. Folio, bound in publisher's illustrated wrappers. Tokyo: Asahi Shimbunsha, 1939-1941.
A splendid group of wartime issues of this handsomely produced Japanese answer to Life Magazine, which ran from 1923 until 2000. The group consists of 7 issues from 1939, 50 issues from 1940 and 52 issues from 1941. The wartime issues are particulary scarce. Wear to some issues, but overall in an excellent state of preservation, especially given their fragil nature.
