Chikuho No Kodomotachi [Children of Chikuho]
Tokyo: Patoria Shoten, 1960. First Edition. Uncommon first printing of this early Domon title, documenting the lives of children in Chikuho, a coal mining village in southern Japan. A cheaply-made book, rarely found in collectible condition; this copy perhaps a little better than typical. Shahn is known to have worked from Domon's photographs for his "Lucky Dragon" series (1960-62), and this, from Shahn's personal library, was likely one of the working sources for those paintings. Quarto (25.5 cm). Original pictorial wrappers; 95pp (chiefly illustrations). Small losses to upper and lower corners of front wrapper (ca. 1" and 1/4" respectively); text tanned as usual; Very Good. From the library of Ben and Bernarda Bryson Shahn, with estate label tipped on inside front cover.
