Tokyo: The Yomiuri, 1975-1976. First Editions. Two volumes. Encyclopedic magazines featuring a thorough and fetishistic look at American ski culture through tourism, fashion, goods and lifestyle products, with thousands of photographs in color and black and white, as well as detailed text in Japanese. A treatise on every aspect of skiing in Alaska (1975) and Colorado (1976), and as exhaustive, well documented and photographed a catalog of American skiing culture as has likely ever been produced, far exceeding in content and aesthetic any American magazine of the time. Crease to the bottom edge of the front cover of the 1976 edition, else close to near fine in photo-illustrated wrappers. Uncommon, even in Japan.
