Oblong folio. Unpaginated. Original blue paper covered boards with silver decoration and lettering on covers. Photo-illustrated title page. Book housed in its original printed cardboard slipcase. A selection of spectacular photographs of the Japanese Navy in World War II. The work is divided into two parts, the first one concerned with naval training, while the second part deals with the unfolding course of the war, being a record of Japanese successes from Pearl Harbor, Malaya, New Guinea, and other parts of South East Asia. This scarce and stunning work is one of the very first to have an extended pictorial account of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Includes also numerous b/w Soviet-style photographic plates of naval guns, battleships, military planes, as well as photographs of operations in China, Java, Borneo, Philippines, New Guinea, and other areas in South-East Asia. None of the images are credited to a particular photographer but it includes work by Matsugi Fujio and (possibly) Kimura Ihei. Slipcase age-toned, rubbed and partly chipped along edges. Binding is rubbed along edges, with silver decoration partly missing on covers. Offsetting to endpapers. Text in Japanese. Slipcase in overall poor to fair, binding in good- to good, interior in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory #
