IMPERIAL GOVERNMENT of MANCHOUKUO, Manciu-Cuo nei fotografi / Die Junge Mandschrei in Bildern / Young Manchoukuo in pictures, Manchuria 1938. Soft cover 50 pages with photographs. Captions in Japanese, German, Italian and English. Cover damaged, title page and forword missing[2 pages], content clean. Stamp of 'Deutscher Elternverband in Lettland -Bibliothek'. Poor to fair copy.
"The book's place of publication is unknown, but, given that the title and captions appear in four languages - Japanese, Italian, German, and English - the work is clearly intended for an international audience, with focus on Japan, Italy and Germany in the early days of their alliance. A pictorial report on the state of the young 'nation' , this work is strongly propagandistic, drawing on the vocabulary of German and Russian Constructivisme and New Objectivity - shots from above of repetitive forms and glowing, happy workers and farmers"
