Notes:Rarely seen Kabuki magazine "Entertainment Photos" (previously "Entertainment Photo Book"). The magazine cover is a Kabuki actor print designed by Kawase Hasui, while internally the magazines also contain a lovely Kabuki actor kuchi-e, also by Toyokuni. 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 good condition for its age, having been contained in and protected by a hard cover magazine folder. Surviving prints from this series are extremely rare. Some examples of this magazine are contained in the recently published reference "Kawase Hasui - 130th Anniversary Exhibition Catalogue".
