Manchoukuo and the Manchurian Question

Tokyo: The League of Nations Association of Japan, 1932. First edition. Octavo (23 cm). Original, peach-colored, side-stapled wrappers printed in black; 18 pp. A scarce account of the establishment of Manchoukuo written by the Japanese diplomat and one-time Minister of Foreign Affairs, Viscount Ishii (1866-1945). The Japanese established Manchoukuo (Manchuria) as a puppet state in Feb. 1932, although the League of Nations declared it a rightful part of China in 1933, leading Japan to resign its membership. The area came back under Chinese control after the Soviet invasion of 1945 and was a base for Mao's People's Liberation Army in their war against the Nationalist government. No other copies found in commerce (July 2016). Slight wear to wrappers with some minor paper loss to spine ends and corners; Very Good. Item #03022
