About this Item

The uncommon 1929 official report of the outline of reconstruction work in Tokyo and Yokohama in response to the lethal earthquake which struck in the early morning hours of Sept. 1st, 1923. This earthquake was one of the most powerful in recorded history, measuring a 7.9 in magnitude, and devastated Tokyo and the port city of Yokohama. Accounts indicate the duration of the quake was anywhere between 4 to 10 minutes. This report, its first appearance in book form, is solid and VG to VG+ in its blue cloth, with bright gilt-titling along the spine. Light spotting to the fore-edge and minimal wear along the gutters. 6 detailed fold-out maps at the rear, dozens of crisp black-and-white photos thruout. A Preface (an "Imperial Edict on Reconstruction"), each page protected by its original glassine tissue-guard, was issued by the Emperor and was signed "Imperial Sign manual/Prince Regent's Sign Manual". Text in English. Bookseller Inventory # 14495
