About this Item

Nikaho, Akita Perfecture: Committee for Construction of the Shirase Antarctic Expedition Memorial Hall. 1 August 1993, First Edition. 27.0 cm. pp. 5, 115 text, [1], 1. 12 black-and-white photographic images, one diagram and 6 maps in text. Textured cream colored pictorial wraps. Front cover with an image of the Kainan Maru, titles in black on covers and spine A very informative publication with translations by Zenya Taniguchi. Written in commemoration of the 80th anniversary of Shirase's Expedition toward the South Pole, the publication consists of three parts: Part One is a reproduction of The Geographic Journal article dated July to August 1933 by Ivar Hamre entitled The Japanese South Polar Expedition 1911-1912: A Little Known Episode in Antarctic Exploration. Part Two is a duplication of 30 Australian newspaper articles documenting the Japanese Antarctic Expeditions stay in Sydney in between their two voyages to Antarctica. This also includes seven newspaper articles documenting their return to New Zealand after completing the JAE. Part Three is the Japanese translation of Part Two. These newspaper articles were originally assembled and published as a group by Kou Kusunoki. Most notable about these newspaper articles is, unlike today, they were written during a time when journalist did their best to convey accuracy in what they observed. These articles, when read as a body of work and in sequence, give a clear understanding of Shirase, his crew and several fascinating occurrences during the expedition's stay in Australia and New Zealand. Very Scarce - signed by Zenya Taniguchi inside the front cover. Ross 2.11.1. Bookseller Inventory # ZTMSTX1010
