Complete volume 3. A good example of a specialist amateur magazine catering to users of the famous German camera. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the Leica first came to Japan in 1929 aboard the famous airship Graf Zeppelin and has attracted a large fan-base ever since. This monthly magazine was first published in January 1934 and vol. 4, no. 6 issue is in fact the last under the name of Leica. The magazine continued under a new name Compact Camera Monthly [Gekkan Kogata Kamera] in January 1936. Boeder, Titus, Japanese Photography from the Pre-War Period: Photobooks & Prints, London, Maggs Bros., 2007

Very well preserved set.
