Notes

First edition, only issued in Japan. Personal selection from the career of the great Japanese jazz photographer/designer, the only Japanese to receive the prestigious Milt Hinton Award for Jazz Photography. This copy dated and warmly inscribed, in an elegant block printed script, by the author on the front free endpaper, "Bernard; Nice to meet and have known you, Through our friend in jazz, Ann, Thanks for everything, K. Abe, July 1 '80." Inscribed to Bernard LaMotte (1903-1983), a prominent American-born artist who lived for much of his life in France. It was at his Paris studio, Le Bocal, that his friend Antoine de Saint- Exupery wrote the Le Petit Prince and where LaMotte illustrated Exupery's Flight To Arras. A very nice copy of a scarce and fragile publication, this with excellent provenance.
