Colour folding map, two full page colour plates, profusely illustrated throughout with black and white photographic illustrations two to a page, 4 + 3 + 179pp, 28 x 21cm. A little loss to a tissue guard, upper corners trifle bumped. A very good copy in original grey boards with red tassle ties.

Photographic album compiled 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 depicting Manchurian culture are included towards the end.
