[PROLETARIAN LITERATURE] Yanase Masamu, Murayama Tomoyoshi, et al. SENKI 6 issues. To^kyo^, Sho^wa 5-6 [1930-1]. Vol.3 #1; Vol.3, #4; Vol.3, #6; Vol.3, #8; Vol.3; #10; vol.4, #12. This interesting magazine, THE BATTLE FLAG, was published at the end of the leftward drift of the avant-garde, when such artists, writers and critics as Yanase Masamu & Murayama Tomoyoshi [earlier both members of the MAVO movement] were leading the charge. Soon enough, as the troubles with China over Manchuria, North China and Shanghai came to dominate political discourse, they were silenced, jailed, or pushed aside, but for a brief moment, captured here, anything, even revolution, seemed possible. All the covers of these six magazines are by Yanase and the contents are full of interesting articles, manga and drawings. Some corners are bent and/or missing, but overall the condition is good. 6 issues.
