Fuji San, Tokyo, published by K. Ogawa, 1912 ( Meiji 45), large 4to (10 x 14 1/2 in - 25 x 37 cm), decorated card covers, silk stab ties, title page in Japanese & English, 2 pages of text (one in English and one in Japanese), 24 full page black and white halftone plates including the first plate which folds out, glossy paper, spine uncovered except for approximately 1 inch at the top and bottom, 26 pp. An album of 24 images of Mount Fuji viewed from different locations. Each photograph page is printed in black and white halftone on one side of the page only and is captioned in English and Japanese. The photographer is also identified on each of the plates. Eleven of the photographs are attributed to T. Enami. Of the balance, seven are attributed to K. Ogawa and six to K. Tamamura. It appears that the book was issued with loose tissue guards between the plates.

The front cover of this book has a vertical crease (hinge) approximately 2 cm from the spine. This area is not reinforced and the front cover is generally partially broken or completely severed at this point.

Prior to this book, K. Ogawa published 2 books dedicated to images of Mt. Fuji. These books were:

  • The Volcanoes of Japan, Part 1, Fujisan, by John Milne & W.K. Burton, ca. 1892, 10 Collotype Plates. Information here.
  • Fuji San Photographed by Herbert G. Ponting, 1905, 25 Halftone Plates. Information here.
