Japanese catalog in english of OTAKE & CO LTD. No 17, 2-Chome, Sugamo, Toshima-Ku, Tokyo Japan. Probably early 1960’s. This is particularly interesting as it ties the VESPER brand name binoculars to this manufacturer. Three optical companies with Otake in the Romanji form of the names appear in the 1959 list of Japanese binocular manufacturers, but none of the addresses are the same, so they probably represent a slightly different time frame. Collection of Mark Ohno.
