Take Ivy

Hayashida, Teruyoshi


Edition : First / Tokyo / Fujingahosha / 1965 / Hardcover. / VG+ / VG+
4to, Unpaginated. Orange boards in photographic dustwrapper. Numerous colour plates. Text in Japanese. A little wear to dustwrapper and minor foxing and yellowing to endpapers.

Incredible cult book that started the ‘Ivy Style’ craze. Sold out immediately on publication, and was little known until recently outside of Japan. A beautiful and amazing portrait of Ivy League life, portraying what is now considered a classic style in menswear. The first edition is particularly elusive.
