[Tokyo]: Hakugakan, 1904. A very good copy, edges worm, scattered foxing at margins, colors vibrant. Chromolithograph. No. 37 from the series: Japanese-Russia War Memorial Picture [or Visual record of the Russo-Japanese War, Nichiro sent gah ). Text reads: The Japanese army attacking Sekkijo (Hsimuchen) on July 30th in Meiji 37 (1904) occupied the highland area from Daiboshin to North Sough West, and the next day, on the 31st, Futsugyou-gun troop?s main unit faced the enemy in Sankakuyama Eastern highland. They were able to carry their force in the western 345 meter area. However, because of the enemy?s artillery?s violent attack in the Shosanryaku and Shoboshin highland , they could not continue to go forward. After that, the enemy gradually increased more new forces, and around 5: 30 pm, they went into the full force attack over us. Although our artillery bravely returned and damaged the enemy greatly, there artillery?s violent attack prevented our chase, and they spent the night close to the enemy force. By that time, our artillery shut down their retreat root. Therefore, the enemy took advantage of the night darkness, most of all the force retreated towards Kaijo area, except about two divisions, led by the fifth division?s lieutenant general, Alekisefe (?). At noon on that day, our force advanced 120th latitude. We gained a small amount of booty. Individual prints from the series quite scarce. A few are held by the the Library of Congress. We could find none with this image.
