Series XXI: Other Film Related Materials and Books, 1891-1996

This series contains archival objects related to Japanese books published during the Meiji, Taishō, and Shōwa eras. These archival materials were found with the monographs that were individually cataloged. They include a movie theater accounting record, an autograph book from a wedding, manuscripts, brochures, promotional fliers, postcards, and Taishō period handbills. Monographs from the early eras of silent films, motion pictures, and photography were separated and individually cataloged. These individually cataloged materials are accessible via the Columbia University Libraries online catalog. Single monographs and serials which do not have any other issues in the library catalog, or books with archival value can also be found in this section. For old film journals, including Nippon Eiga/日本映画, Eigai Ōrai/映画往来, Shin Eiga/新映画 and others, see Series X.1: Pre-War and Wartime Magazines: Film Magazines.
