Enomoto, Matsunosuke [illustrated and published by].
Gaikoteki Kokkei Rokumo Taiji no Zu [Russia as a Spider Fighting with Japan]
Osaka: Enomoto Matsunosuke [Horeikan], 1904. This colour offset-printed illustration based on Fred W. Rose's "Serio-Comic War Map" was published on August 3, 1904, when the Russo-Japanese War was starting to heat up. Russia is illustrated as a spider in the image, and European countries such as Britain are depicted supporting Japan in its fight against Russia (while countries including the United States, Spain, and Portugal watch and wait). Another interesting feature is that students and anarchists are shown attacking Russia by grappling with the spider s body. Satirical illustrations depicting Russia as a spider are very rare. One leaf, complete. A few folds. Minor tears and losses to extremities. Otherwise very good to near fine. 54.4 x 78.8 cm. Text in Japanese. Extra shipping charges may be applied due to size and weight of item. [Attributes: First Edition]
Bookseller: Kagerou Bunko (ABAJ, ILAB) [Tokyo, Japan]
