Once Upon a Time: Visions of Old Japan
by Pierre Loh
Publisher's Description
First published in France in 1984, this selection of photographs made by the European photographers Felice Beato and the little-known Baron Raimund von Stillfried shows life in Japan during the last half of the 19th Century. Exquisitely reproduced, these delicate hand-tinted portraits of Japanese from different classes and occupations--from fishmongers to princes--serve as an elegant and lasting tribute to a lifestyle that has now faded into the distant past. One of the most beautiful books of the year.
