About This Item

Large album of 60 photographic plates printed on thick paper, published to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the founding of the Japanese puppet state of Manchukuo, edited by Sakata Yataro, and distributed as a sort of propaganda targeted at a Japanese audience, the plates depicting scenes including the Mukden or Manchurian Incident, the signing of the founding of the Manchukuo state, Emperor Puyi and his visit to Japan, the Kwantung army and its leading officers, government offices, elementary school education, the Manchukuo central bank and its currency, railroads, the postal system, agriculture, fisheries, salt production, street scenes in Harbin with signage in Japanese, English, Chinese and Russian, monuments to martyrs, the Great Wall, marriages, funerals, and many others, as well as texts such as the national anthem of Manchukuo and documents regarding Japanese-Manchukuo friendship and solidarity. Some scattered foxing and toning. Folio. Original cloth portfolio box case, one closure missing, plates unbound as issued. Some minor soiling, abrasions to case. n.p. Manshu Kyozai Shuppan, 1937. The publisher of this volume was an educational materials company, and this collection of plates may have been used to explain the founding of Manchukuo and Japan's imperial project. The volume also comes with an endorsement from Minami Jiro, the Governor-general of the Japanese colony of Korea, in the form of a calligraphic inscription which reads: "Korea and Manchuria as one." As of September 2019, we were not able to locate this work via WorldCat.
