- Folding color Japanese calendar map on sheet 78x54. Featuring a map of the Antarctic with a calendar for the year 1957 printed in the lower section of the sheet. This calendar was published as a celebratory supplement on the occasion of the completion of publishing of all the 50 volumes of Sekai Shonen Shojo Bungaku Zenshu (World Literature for Young Boys and Girls Series] by Sogensha in 1957. The map shows exploration routes, dates, the locations of the existing Japanese bases, the bases they had planned for the period 1955 to 1956, and the bases of various other nations for the period from 1956 to 1957. The first Japanese Antarctic observation party on the icebreaker Soya landed on East Ongul Island on January 29th, 1957 and established their base Showa Kichi. The ship depicted on the right side of the map is the historic vessel Soya which carried the expeditors to the Antarctic and was involved in a number of journeys to the continent between 1956 and 1962.
