Complete with Japanese text booklet laid in at rear. Presented in a custom box with chemise. Inscribed and dated (May 6th 1994) on p. 2 by Frank to Harvey Zucker, a founding member of the Photographic Historical Society of New York and proprietor of A Photographer’s place, which closed in 2001. As Andrew Roth put it, “I have conducted an interview with the book merchant Harvey Zucker, who, single-handedly and despite himself, established the out-of-print, rare photography book market at his legendary SoHo store, A Photographer’s Place. It was the first of its kind; nothing has replaced it since it closed in 2001.” Zucker, who died in 2015, was himself a photographer, and his daguerrotypes are in the collections of the George Eastman House and the Smithsonian.
