Tokyo, Office of the Scientific Expedition to Manchoukuo, Faculty of Science and Engineering, Waseda University, 1934-1939. 12 volumes (26.5 x 19 cm).

Description: , . . BMC NH supp., p. 1315 (lacking 4 volumes). The fifth section, on zoology, of a general report concerning the research of the Japanese in Manchuria. The complete work is divided into six sections with a general report, geology, geography, botany, zoology and anthropology, but the present is the largest and most important section, nearly as large as the other five together. The articles thoroughly treat the fish, birds, mammals, insects, spiders & scorpions, reptiles & amphibians, crabs, molluscs, etc. of Manchuria. The research for at least the present part was undertaken primarily in the province of Jehol in the southwest part of the Manchurian state established by the Japanese, now parts of Hebei, Liaoning and Inner Mongolia, northeast of Beijing. The articles were written by numerous important Japanese scientists and naturalists, and appear here in English and (apparently somewhat abridged) in Japanese. By the present section V, the articles were printed haphazardly, making it difficult to find the section complete.Very good copies, spine of some volumes damaged. List with details of the collation available. Extremely rare reports on the zoological research of the Japanese during their controversial occupation of Chinese Manchuria.
