1915 Japanese Photo Book Emperors Russia-japan War China Korea Chosen Manchuoko For Sale

1915 Japanese Photo Book Emperors Russia-japan War China Korea Chosen Manchuoko

JAPANESE PHOTOGRAPHY BOOK, published by TOKOEN, JAPAN, circa 1915.The title-page, table-of-contents pages, and index pages are in JAPANESE only. However, this is primarily a PHOTO book, and all the photographs have captions both in Japanese and English.Large format hardcover book, calf leather covered spine and corners and some sort of pebbled leather covered boards, front cover titled in gilt (in Japanese), rear cover with gilt Publisher’s Colophon Design that contains the statement “Revised Edition Tokoen”, 9” x 12” oblong.Contains 304 photographic plates, the first few in color.An incredible photographic look at JAPAN HISTORY, from the late 19th century through 1915, as seen through an amazing collection of photographs.Probably around 1000 photographs on 304 pages.The photographs deal with many facets of the Japanese Empire, including: Emperors and Emperors’ Families; the War with Russia, early photos of Imperial troops (e.g. “Imperial troop of cavalry fighting with the Satsuma Rebels outside of Kumamoto Castle in 1878” and “Surgeons of the Imperial Army in the time of the Satsuma rebellion of 1878”), the Chino-Japanese war (1894-95), the occupation of Chosen, the occupation of China, Japanese adventurers (“Scene of arrival of the party of the Japanese Antarctic expedition, 1912”), etc. etc.Condition: the covers are worn / frayed at the spine ends and corners; the covers are bound-on somewhat shakily; the inner pages are VERY GOOD - all remain tight, bright, clean and unmarked. A nice copy.I don’t speak Japanese. I tried to provide enough images to give you a good idea of the book and its contents.

Estimated Value $200 - $300 (what I have or would price the item on a BIN basis - your offers will determine the final value, of course!)

Free Shipping within the U.S. only. International buyers please check Shipping Details.
