Colour folding map, two full page colour plates, two to a page black and white photographic illustrations throughout, 4+3+179pp, 26 x 19 cm. Attractive patterned cloth covered with contrasting slightly faded tassle ties, tissue guards foxed but images largely unaffected, closed tear first leaf. Small mark at edge of upper cover. Still a good copy.

This photographic album was complied in 1914 as a reasonably priced souvenir item for Japanese servicemen who were deployed to southern Manchuria along the South Manchurian Railway. The railway was controlled by Japan and Liaodong Peninsula became a Japanese concession after the Russo-Japanese war.

Many photographs in the album cover main buildings and streetscapes of Dalian, Port Arthur, Liaoyang, Mukden, and Changchun. They are mainly related to Japanese administration and military buildings which the Japanese troops were familiar with. Colour plates and numerous black and white photographs cover battle fields during the Russo-Japanese war. Several photographs which depict Manchurian culture are included towards the end.
