1925. Item #88774
[MAVO] HAGIWARA Kyôjiro. SHIKEI SENKOKU. Tokyo, 1925. Prelims, 11pp, 6pp., 161pp., 5pp., finals. Profusely illustrated throughout in linocuts by Okada Tatsuo, Toda Tatsuo, and Yabashi Kimimaro. Wrappers designed by Okada. With the Okada-designed slipcase and very scarce as such. Perhaps the most important Mavo-inspired volume. Here in the second issue with the addition of color to the covers and a few of the plates. A cornerstone of any MAVO collection. The spine is perished but preserved, the covers and slipcase are a bit rubbed and a film of some sort has been laid down on the slipcase spine. But all and all, a good copy of this fragile work. For more on its importance, see Weisenfeld's book, MAVO, JAPANESE ARTISTS AND THE AVANT GARDE, pp. 97-101.
