1933. Item #88906
[CHILDREN'S MAGAZINE - JAPANESE]. KODOMO NO TENCHI V. 1, #2. Tokyo, June 1933. There must be an interesting story behind KODOMO NO TENCHI. In style, size, printing quality and even in the artists and illustrators it featured (Takei, Hatsuyama, etc.) it iterated KODOMO NO KUNI. There were additions, some from western Japan, including such important artists as Maekawa Sempan, Ota Saburo, Ishii Hakutei, etc. This is the second issue - research has not yet revealed how long it lasted, but obviously it could not duplicate the 22 year history of KODOMO NO KUNI. As charming as its "rival". In very good condition overall with a back cover by Takei.
