Tokyo: Asunaro Shobo, 1974. First Edition. Oblong quarto. SIGNED and inscribed by Ishigame in Japanese. 31 full bleed gravure photographs of babies and toddlers with text in Japanese on the accompanying page. Ishigame spent his entire career on this subject, and surely must rank as one of the greatest photographer's of children of all-time. Despite heightened awareness of Japanese photography in the West, Ishigame remains largely unknown. Boards bowed (as usual), else near fine in a near fine jacket.
