Map of Japan. [Fukuoka?]
Published c. 1945, Japan by Hiji Publishing (?).
Appears to be "Niche National Map of New Japan"? Google translates title as "Pro-Wrestling", which is likely an error although perhaps it refers to sumo-wrestling?? We confess ignorance of Japanese characters and language, so any input from browsers will be appreciated and the listing will be updated to reflect.
Folding color litho pocket map. Text entirely in Japanese.
Publisher's pictorial paper wrappers, pocket map format.
Item is old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Paper gently age worn, slight rubbing, light old damp staining, remains overall clean and attractive as a fragile survival.
Paper is lightly toned, signs of handling, small scattered spotting, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. The scarce pamphlet displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this undoubtedly scarce item survives.
