Takaho Itagaki (1894 - 1966) was an philosopher and art critic who, due to his good German knowledge, found a special access to the Western avant-garde. With his numerous publications on photography, film and architecture, he is regarded as an important transformer of Western culture and aesthetics to Japan.
Spine slightly old restored, otherwise a very fine copy with the rare slipcase.
