Military Survey Department
Ogawa Kazumasa (Halftone Plates):
The Russo-Japanese War, Taken by the Photographic Department of the Imperial Headquarters, Army (First and Third), 11 volumes, Tokyo, publisher - K. Ogawa, agents - Kelly & Walsh, "Copyright 1904, by The Military Survey Department," large oblong 4to (15 x 10 3/8 in - 38.4 x 26.4 cm), stiff red or charcoal gray paper wraps with silver lettering (Japanese an English) on front and black decoration on the back, two stab cord ties, spine covered, published on a monthly or semimonthly basis during Meiji 37 (1904) and Meiji 38 (1905), collotype plates, no text pages, reads Japanese style from back to front. All printing is in Japanese and English.

The parts each contain a title page, a "Contents" page and individually numbered collotype plates printed on one side of the plate only. On the average each part has 28+ plates. The plates have detailed captions in the margins. Some volumes contain unnumbered collotype plates immediately after the listing of plates ("Contents") page. These plates have images of high ranking officers. The unnumbered plates are not included in the "contents" list. This is a deluxe printing (collotype rather than halftone) of the plates that are found in the hard bound editions of this series that were published later. The plates are thick non-glossy paper with high quality collotype reproductions of the war images.

Some plates have a tissue overlay which covers the entire image on the plate. The overlay is hinged (glued down at the top) and can be lifted up to see the image below. The overlay highlights topographic and, in some cases, military dispositions which are shown in the underlying image. All lettering on the tissue overlay is in Japanese.

This unit contains 11 volumes and is complete for the First Army and Third Army. It does not contain the volumes for Second Army, Fourth Army, Karafuto Army, Yalu Army or the Navy.

These volumes were advertised by K. Ogawa in the Kokka, #182, July of 1905, where he advertised "Photographs of the Russo-Japanese War...13 Volumes Already Published." Each Volume was priced at 2 yen (collotype) and 60 sen (halftone). The collotype volumes were priced 3.5 times the price for the halftone. I find the collotype versions very rarely enter the market. Even the individual volumes of the half-tone plates are seldom seen. Rather, these items are generally found in hard bound formate in either 2 or 6 books.

Based upon the Ogawa advertisement noted above, it appears that these individual volumes were published in halftone as well as collotype. However, I have only seen the halftone plates in the bound volume format.

A two volume hard bound set consisting of 27 numbered parts (23 Army and 4 Navy), 787 black and white half-tone plates (Army, 660+ plates - Navy, 120+ plates) was published ca 1905. Of the total 787 plates, 15 are foldout and 19 have tissue overlays with Japanese language descriptive titles. Each part has a title page, listing of plates and ends with a colophon. All plates have Japanese and English descriptive titles on the plate. The plates are generally printed front and back. The volumes read from back to front in Japanese style. This two volume set contains no text pages. I believe that the collotype volumes contain the same images/plates found in this two volume half-tone set. Information of this two volume set is here.

These images are also found in a bound 6 volume set with half-tone plates. That set contains additional plates as well as text sections. Information on the six volume set is here.

The collotype plates are much higher quality than the halftone printed plates. Below is a side by side comparison of the two types of printing.

Each Part (volume) is dedicated to a specific Japanese Army. The plate numbers run consecutively, by Army, through the parts. In other words, the First Army plates are numbered 1-90. The Third Army plates are numbered 1-224.

Here is a breakdown of the parts relating to the First Army and the Third Army. Part:

                                             Nos.    Year/Month Published
Vol V        First Army, Part 1, plates     1-30     1905, January
Vol VI       First Army, Part 2, plates    31-60     1905, February
Vol XVIII    First Army, Part 3, plates    61-90     1905, August

Vol VII      Third Army, Part 1, plates     1-27     1905, March
Vol VIII     Third Army, Part 2, plates    28-53     1905, March
Vol IX       Third Army, Part 3, plates    54-79     1905, April
Vol X        Third Army, Part 4, plates   80-107     1905, May
Vol XI       Third Army, Part 5, plates  108-133     1905, May
Vol XII      Third Army, Part 6, plates  134-162     1905, June
Vol XIII     Third Army, Part 7, plates  163-191     1905, June
Vol XIV      Third Army, Part 8, plates  192-224     1905, July

I only have personally examined the 11 parts listed above (First and Third Army) and they are recorded on this web page. The parts average 28+ plates each. Using that figure and the number of plates found in the two volume set with half-tone plates, I believe that the complete set of the 23 volumes/parts (Army) with collotype plates looks like this:

                                             Numbered Plates*
Parts 1-4        Second Army for a total of  112 plates
Parts 5-6, 18    First Army for a total of    90 plates (this unit)
Parts 7-14       Third Army for a total of   224 plates (this unit)
Parts 15-17      Fourth Army for a total of   90 plates
Parts 19-20      Second Army for a total of   60 plates
Parts 21-22      Karafuto Army for a total of 56 plates 
Parts 23         Yalu Army for a total of     23 plates
                   Total number of plates    655 plates

* Some volumes also contain unlisted/unnumbered plates (generally 2 or less) at the front.

It is also likely that Parts 1-4 of the Naval book were published for a total of 117 collotype plates.
This would make a complete set of the collotype print books total 27 individual books.

The information that follows details the contents of books for the First Army and Third Army.
