1 GENTHE, Arnold. [Photographer] OLD CHINATOWN. A BOOK OF PICTURES. With Text by Will Irwin
New York Mitchell Kennerley 1913 Hardcover 
Tall 8vo. in original black cloth stamped with gilt and red lettering and decoration. The second (and superior) edition of this book with 91 richly printed half-tone photographic images of San Francisco's Chinatown. Arnold Genthe (1869-1942) photographed beauty and it is easy to find it here in the faces of the people, the markets, the costumes, and the community that Genthe had recorded in the decade preceding the 1906 fire. Tips lightly "bumped," and light rubbing at head and heel of spine; endpapers with light spotting, but overall a tight, bright, clean copy. A near fine copy of this important book.
