eBook: Old Japanese Photographs: Collectors’ Data Guide

If you are interested in the field of Japanese photographs as a collector, researcher, dealer, curator or auction house then this book is, quite simply, indispensable. The author has written on and researched the subject for many years and has brought together in one volume the results of exciting new research and also data which has been gathered from long-forgotten and largely inaccessible nineteenth-century sources. Souvenir photographs of Japan, mostly hand-coloured, are extremely collectible today. However, it is usually very difficult to identify the photographer or studio from where they originated. Provided here is a list of more than 4000 such photographs which greatly assists the identification process. Finally, a unique index of over 350 photographers and publishers of Japan-related stereoviews is also included.

I would recommend all of Terry's books on Japanese, Korean and Chinese photography. Terry has just announced the 3rd and final volume of his comprehensive survey of photographers in China "History of Photography in China: Chinese Photographers 1842-1879" to be released in November. More information about his publications can be found on his website with "Old Japanese Photographs: Collectors' Data Guide" however now out of print, hence this new eBook.
