This a study of the Manchurian and Shanghai crises, the first serious confrontation between Japan and the world community. The Manchurian crisis was one of the major international crises of the period between World Wars I and II. For Britain and America, it bred a new distrust of Japanese long-term national objectives. It also brought home to all concerned the weaknesses of the League of Nations and the other instruments of collective security which had been devised to deal with problems of the Pacific Ocean area. The first focus of this study is on how one of the international bodies of the time, the League of Nations, attempted to cope with the emergency that broke out in the east in September 1931. The second focus is on the clash of attitudes in Japanese politics. The period covered by the Manchurian crisis was the point when civilian government in Japan was seriously challenged for the first time in the 20th century. The book offers a fresh account of the crisis, making use of new materials, in Japanese and in English, which have become available and which have been drawn upon for this work. These throw new light on the struggles both within Japan and among League enthusiasts to ensure that Japan, the Asian-state which was at once most stable and economically most successful, should not end up in isolation.

Oblong leather-bound folio album (with string-tie binding). The album consists of 244 photographs (all tipped in) of various sizes and origins, but most of the photographs (at least 200) were taken by Williams or his colleagues during their time stationed in Shanghai. Photographs show Marines in the city, natives therein, street scenes, rural scenes, views in temples, Marines marching and in casual situations. Also contains nine photographs captioned in the photos (commercial photos) documenting public beheadings, captured rebels, police action; five hand-colored landscape views; and 17 panoramic views of countryside, the Great Wall, temples, and more. Some captions written in ink.
Pictures taken by a British Army Soldier of the 1st Battalion, Lincolnshire Regiment. In addition to Shanghai and Hong Kong, some views may also have been taken in Wei Hai Wei (then a leased territory under British rule) and in Gibraltar, just before it was commissioned to China. The unidentified soldier saw action in the "Shanghai January 28 Incident" during the Shanghai War of 1932. Photos there are taken from behind a sandbag barrier on a city street, with guns at the ready as the Sino-Japanese dispute unfolds. Also present are photographs of the Hankow barracks at Sham Shui Po, the camp in Kowloon which would later be used as a prison camp by the Japanese invaders in World War II. Also included are images of firing practice, drills, trenching, tent camps, graves of fallen soldiers and Royal marines at the Hong Kong cemetery, and eight sun-toned photographs of the Suez Canal. The life and industry of the local Chinese population is also depicted. [Based on dealer description.]
An album of photos that belonged to an [unidentified] US Marine based in Shanghai in the 1930s. An assemblage of 239 personal photos, plus two larger-format posed group photos of his military unit in uniform and at a formal dinner, together with 68 commercial photos collected at the time around Shanghai, all mounted (removably) at a later date in a Japanese-style album. The personal photos include soldiers at leisure in their barracks, posing with weapons during training, and wearing gas masks for some sort of drill, one with a Military Police Company A, 4th Marines sign dated 1936 in pen on the back, four shots of a small baseball game, and many with friends or family members taken at various locales around the city or on trips to the countryside, including at a Christian church. There are about four pages of photos from a trip upriver, which included a visit to a monument to Frederick Townsend Ward placed by the American Legion. We can see examples of the tense situation in Shanghai at the time, such as people posing next to barbed wire barriers and a sign from 1932 declaring a state of emergency in both English and Chinese. Nine of the photos are from a trip to Guam, depicting soldiers and some sort of a military review in front of an imposing building (the site identifiable because there is a “Guam” banner visible with a magnifying glass)." Also contains some graphic images of people tortured and/or killed. [Descriptive information provided by dealer // JAD2015/5/11]
