Sangyō Kumiai Chūōkai 産業組合中央會, Showa 14 . Stock ID #164293
Coloured folding pictorial map of China, the south-western section of Japan, Korea and Taiwan. 77.5 x 52.5cm. Numerous closed closed tears on folds repaired with archival tape, occasional small holes, small section along upper margin chipped with loss, still an attractive image. Issued as a supplement to the magazine Ie no Hikari 家の光 (volume15, number 1), on New Year's Day, 1939 this pictorial map of East Asia is liberally illustrated with human figures, animals, ships, resources etc. An inset map in the lower right corner shows the area of northern China which was occupied by the Japanese Imperial Army by the end of October 1938. At first glance an apparently cheerful map which in the light of history has an ominous feeling about it. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 164293).
