First edition of this early and informative "advertorial" piece promoting the range of business concerns established by the South Manchuria Railway in Japanese-held Manchuria in the 1930s, including descriptions of the company's coal mining, warehousing, railway workshops, harbours, wharves, hotels, hospitals, and schools, and details of the administration of the Railway Zone. "Thus its far-flung activities and interests are inseparably tied up with the industrial, commercial, social, intellectual, and general economic life of the country, and the epic story of its growth is to a large extent the story of the phenomenal development and progress of Manchuria during the past twenty-eight years". Excellently preserved and uncommon.
