"Japan Photo Almanac 1940" Photobook WWII Propoganda Book


Availability: Out of stock

"Japan Photo Almanac 1940." Japan: Domei Tsushin-sha, January 1940, First Edition, HB, no dj as issued, 31 cm x 24 cm, 224 pp with additional pages of advertisements, b/w & color photos, English & Japanese text.

A exceedingly rare book from Japan in 1940 - a fascinating work of war time propaganda. The book has some cultural content but the heavy emphasis is on the military and the Sino-Japanese War activities. As you can imagine, most copies of this book must have been destroyed during the post WWII occupation. Never encountered any other copies though I have seen a copy of the 1939 Almanac online listed for 900$.

Condition: Fairly Good I guess, considering it's age and fragile construction.
