1925. Item #88834
[MAVO] HAGIWARA Kyôjiro. SHIKEI SENKOKU. Tokyo, Taishô 14 . Prelims, 11pp, 6pp., 161pp., 5pp., finals. Profusely illustrated throughout in linocuts by Okada Tatsuo, Toda Tatsuo, and Yabashi Kimimaro. Wrappers designed by Okada. Without the Okada-designed slipcase. Perhaps the most important Mavo-inspired volume, and, in its first edition, as here, quite scarce. Far more difficult to find than the second edition. The cornerstone of any MAVO collection. Neither the Pompidou nor the Uruwa Museum catalog illustrate the first edition, even without its slipcase - they both show the second edition with the red on blue background second-issue slipcase. In quite good condition overall, unsophisticated with a bit of rubbing and loss to the fragile spine. In a custom fitted clasped chitsu case.
