CHINA Kwok Ying Fung 1943 B/W PHOTOGRAPHS Fritz Henle



CHINA by Kwok Ying Fung, photographs arranged and edited by FRITZ HENLE. 1943. Oversized  9 1/2' X 12'. 192 pages.


A collection of photos of China and her people, one per page with the captions opposite, black and white photography, quite wonderful.


Red cloth boards quite worn. Former owner name and address neatly stamped onto front red endpaper, next white page with title lightly foxed but, THEN, the rest of the pages ARE CLEAN AND LOVELY,  NO CLIPS, NO FUNKY ODOR, SPINE GOOD, NO SPLIT SEAMS.  A nice clean reading copy.


Although this book was done during WWII, and it is mentioned in the Introduction, the photos are not of wartime images. They are rather timeless images of the countryside and people. Chapters include: Out of Yesterday; Architecture and Sculpture; Religion, Education; Life and Livelihood; Into Tomorrow.......


List of photographers: Fritz Henle, Sidney Gamble, China Film Company, Pun Leuk Loo, Man Li Hung, Thomas Kwang, Life Magazine, George Kim Leung, Wing Yeu Young, Kai-Fook Yau, Ray Scott, T.W. Ho, Yuen Yue, Yau Kai Cheong, Kim Chong Wong, Bick Quong Lee, Agnes Smedley, Herber Moy.
