Bookseller's description: "[AVANT-GARDE POETRY] HINO Shunsuke. Shishû SEKIJI NO KUBI WO KIRU. Tôkyô, Erosu-dô. Shôwa 4 [1929]. 18.5 x 12.7, bound Western-style in wrappers with illustrated covers, book design and illustrations throughout by Iguchi Masao. A product of the Nagoya avant-garde. The illustrations and design of this "CUTTING THE BABY'S THROAT" are jarring, some of the poems sound and feel like they were written while falling down a flight of stairs. The paper is browned and some pages a bit edgeworn but a very good copy overall of this ephemeral production."
