Rare Pentamatic ’35’ Brochure from Japan

Here is another great find – fresh in from a seller in Japan. I believe this may be one of the first dedicated sales brochures for Yashica’s new 35mm SLR film camera. I’m guessing this was released in the Spring of 1960. Unfortunately, Yashica didn’t hide a date code somewhere in the brochure.

This is a scan of the centerfold –

The lower left box translates as “A versatile camera that can be used for practical purposes and hobbies”.
The front cover.
The back cover.

I’ll post additional scans from this brochure soon. Thanks for stopping by! – Chris
