Notes:Rarely seen Kabuki magazine "Entertainment Photo Book". The magazine cover is a Kabuki actor print designed by Kawase Hasui, while internally there is a Kabuki actor kuchi-e by Matsuda Seifu (Morita Kanya). The printing technique is probably a hybrid lithograph/offset (common in the Taisho-era). Along with the Hasui scene, the magazine contains numerous high-quality images of Kabuki actors, Kabuki theatres, etc., as well as Kabuki-related articles.

This magazine is in amazingly good condition for its age. Surviving prints from this series are extremely rare. The only examples I have previously seen are badly damaged and are contained in the recently published reference "Kawase Hasui - 130th Anniversary Exhibition Catalogue".
