Very rare Japanese portfolio, which documents the influence Karl Schneider (1892-1945) in Japan already the 20 years.  Noteworthy is also the fact that the first monograph on Karl Schneider also appeared first 1929 in Germany, in the series „Neue Werkkunst“. The plates contain between one and four photographs and drawings per plate.

The delicate portfolio rubbed at the edges, the boards themselves clean and fresh.
