Shinjuku Guntoden 66/73 / Shinjuku Thievery Story 66/73
Tokyo: Bara-gahosha, 1973. Beautiful fine copy in photo-illustrated wrappers; the best I have seen; extraordinarily rare in this condition, and signed.. First Edition. Small octavo. Either 500 or 1000 copies printed; reports differ, with half the copies lost to water damage. SIGNED by Watanabe in an early hand. A scrapbook of images of the denizens of Kabukicho, almost exclusively portraits, with little of the violent or blatantly sexual overtones noted in other major books covering similar subject matter. Watanabe earned a living taking these snapshots and then selling them to the individuals he had photographed. (Parr / Badger, v3, 221; Auer 570; Aperture 140-143).
