CHOSEN SHOKUSAN GINKO TO CHOSEN SANGYO. (The Korean Colonial Products Bank and the Products of Korea). Seoul, 1924. 72, 35 pp. text plus numerous b/w photographs hors texte. 2 foldouts. 23x16 cm. Stitched, silk-covered boards. Japanese silk ties.
Presumably the Korea Colonial Products Bank was an organ of the Japanese-controlled colonial government of Korea and thus this is a propaganda publication highlighting the beneficial policies of the bank in stimulating and assisting the korean economy. A well-illustrated work showing the country and various aspects of its economy. Text in Japanese. Appears that a frontpaper has been cut out but the title page is present. Otherwise fine. Scarce.
