YADONG YINHUA JI // ATO INGA SHU. (A Collection of Images of East Asia). N.p. (Shanghai), n.d. (1920s). 190 b/w tipped-in photographic illustrations with accompanying tipped-in descriptions. 22x30 cm. Wrappers. Cord ties.
Despite the title, all the images are of China. Accompanying detailed descriptions in English. The publisher was probably Japanese and probably based in Shanghai. We have seen similar albums with the same size photographs and tipped-in descriptions, but with the descriptions in Japanese. The photographers working for the publisher of this work obviously ranged far and wide across China as their productions (as evidenced here) are notable for the many unusual images of little-known and seldom-photographed places. A total of 190 black-and-white tipped-in photographic prints with image size 10.5x15cm.
