- [Sora no Norimono : Hikoki ya Hikosen].

Tokyo, Kano Hakko 1930 (Showa 5). 19x27cm colour illustrated wrapper; 12pp including wrapper all in colour. Definitely used with some chipping; the covers are flimsier paper than the inside light card leaves for some reason and have some creases and short tears. ¶ Second printing maybe and not a great copy but worth it just for the centre spread - the sky full of wondrous machines. Now that monster airliner and three of the smaller aircraft appear over a very similar city in another transport picture book published in Osaka in 1930. As our book was first published in 1928 I charge the Osaka publisher with plagiarism. Of course it could be the same artist and, having invented such splendid aircraft, why wouldn't you use them again? Notice how the back cover has been titled in English so a western kid could just start at the other end. I can't find another copy of this anywhere.
