~~ Guide-Books, Excursions
Pan-Pacific Science Congress, 1926 ~~

National Research Council, Department of Education, Tokyo:
Guide-Books, Excursions, Pan-Pacific Science Congress, 1926, 24 pamphlets, ca 1926, 16mo (5 3/4 x 7 3/4 in - 14.5 x 19.5 cm), illustrated paper wraps, staple bound, 92 black and white halftone plates (10 foldout), 29 maps (many in color and folding), cardboard case, total of 471 pages. This is a guide book series prepared expressly for participants in the 3rd Pan Pacific Science Congress held in Tokyo from October 30 through November 11, 1926. Each pamphlet discusses a specific topic/area and lists a tour date. The earliest date listed is October 18-25 and the latest is November 11-15, 1926. The emphasis of the guide books is on the unique geology and flora of the areas but historical and cultural aspects are also covered. There are numerous diagrams small maps and plans and charts in the text and, occasionally, halftone text illustrations. The set was issued in a cardboard case with a closing flap. The back cover of the case has a listing of 24 excursion guides. One guide is listed - "(C-4) Lake Districts around Mt. Fuji" - but is not present. However, one unlisted guide - "(D) Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Kobe" - is present. This set is seldom offered as a complete unit. The only time I have seen it offered as a complete set, only 24 pamphlets were noted. I suspect the Kyoto guide was substituted for the Fuji guide.
