A comprehensive grouping of technical reports, by members the Tokyo Research Institute (listed at the front of the volume) relating to seismic and volcanic activity, geology and petrology in Japan: two of the included reports (in Japanese) relate to the seismic event at Niizima in December 1936 and several (in English) relate to events at the Asama Volcano in Honshu (including a remarkable black and white photographic plate of it "exploding" with a dramatic plume of smoke). In addition there is coverage on the effect of seismic events on built structure (including on a Pagoda) as well as reports on global observations with a folding map showing the distribution of "deep earthquakes". Two of the folding charts are a topographic map showing the crater of Mihara and a very large (44.2 x 30.2 cms) impressive coloured geological map of the West of Yokohama.
