1932. Item #89489
[PHOTOGRAPHY] Imada KINGO, editor. HANZAI KAGAKU Vol.3 #7 1932 JUNE. Published in Tokyo by Bukyosha. 8vo. size, printed wrappers. This magazine was only published for a short time, though it managed to include stories by important literary figures, wonderful photomontage and avant garde photo foldouts, strange erotica, tales of urban life, reports on "sexual life among the proletariat", etc., etc. Under the broad rubric of "ero-guro nonsensu", the literary and artistic scenes of pre-War Japan, as embodied here in CRIMINOLOGY MAGAZINE, explored the margins. This is the seventh number of the third year of its publication. As might be expected, the editor, Imada Kingo, was a multitalented writer and artist both, who became best known for his children's stories. With wear at the tail of the spine, else very good. Especially noteworthy are the photos reproduced, done by Horino Masao, the important avant-garde photographer. Interesting and very unusual publication.
