TEXT IN JAPANESE WITH SOME ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONS. Superb and rare large pop up book of eleven architectural projects from the late 1890's to the present day. They include theatres, hotels (the Imperial Hotel designed by Frank Lloyd Wright), train station and the big wheel. The pop-ups are amazing, detailed, stylized and intricate with many movable tabs and fold-outs. Includes a laid in booklet with text in Japanese but with actual historical photos of each architectural site. I cannot find any info on this publication but I assume that it was published in conj. with an exhibition held at the museum. Because of the fragile nature of the book I assume that copies as fine as the one I am offering here are indeed rare. There is a small nick on the top of the edge of the back spine, otherwise the book is fine. Published without a dustjacket.
