        THE STORY OF JAPANESE RAW SILK. [Told in Forty-Seven Original Photographs]

      Tokyo:: Japanese Government Raw Silk Bureau,, 1947. Very Good++. Very Good++ album with original color patterned silk covered boards, string tied on the left as issued. Cover edge wear. The album contains forty-seven 4.3" by 6.3" original black & white photographs mounted one to a page on thick boards using corner mounts (photographs removable). Each page numbered and with corresponding numbered figure legend in English. The photographs themselves are Fine though there is some foxing to a few of the mounting boards. Note is made on the title page of a "foreword and explanation". The explanations appear to be the figure legends. There are no remnants or other evidence of missing pages. The 47 photographs trace the story of Japanese silk from "Silkworm Moths hatching and drying their wings" through "Silkworms spinning Cocoons" & "Making a skein [of silk]" finally to "Raw silk being loaded on ship for export". A unique production presented to General Daniel Noce, Chief of the Civil Affairs Division under General MacArthur with his name on the title page. No copies are located in OCLC or Via Libri. The album dates from circa 1947-1948 and likely was given to General Noce for his efforts in promoting Japanese economic development through trade. The story told through images is an important window into the state of Japanese industry and technology in the immediate post-war period. Oblong. 10.6" by 14.2". 47 Numbered Photographs. Rare.
