Colour folding map, inset with a map and 4 charts, 62 x 44 cm, very good copy.

This 1941 map of the Greater East Asia Prosperity Sphere was issued as a special supplement to the New Year issue of 家の光 (Ie no Hikari), marking the 15th year since its foundation. The magazine was (and is).a monthly magazine which was distributed through regional agricultural co-ops, and the main readership, farmers and their families.

The map covers the Coprosperity Sphere, with south-eastern Soviet Union and northern Australia appearing on the map as well. Agricultural and mineral produces are marked in red and the charts show population figures, population density and the number of Japanese migrants to various areas. It is interesting to see the inset map shows possible enemy air attack routes where bombers would take off from Hawaii, Midway, Guam, Wake Islands, Chongqing and the Philippines. As it turned out, of course, it was Japan that attacked those locations when the Pacific War started.
