Female Japanese Theatrical Revue Magazines
2 Female Japanese Theatrical Revue Magazines
Japan 1953 Paper 
TEXT IN JAPANESE. Three rare magazines for Japanese theatrical revues that featured only women. Each magazine is well illustrated with photographs of the stars of the revues. Two of the magazines appear to be from the same theatrical company. All three have beautiful full color covers. One of the magazines have page folds due to the binding otherwise all are vg. The best example of this kind of theatrical presentation can be found in the film "Sayonara" in which Marlon Brando has a forbidden love affair with the star of the Matsubayashi Theater Revue. Since I don't read Japanese these magazines might very well be from that company.

Tokyo Eleven Paradise
7 Tokyo Eleven Paradise
Japan Edo Tokyo Museum 2001 4887062036 / 9784887062030 First Edition Large laminated Dj. 
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.
