Item description

This very scarce book is titled: Smashing Through Japan's Back Door - An Adventure of Herbert A. Schoenfeld and privately printed in a small edition of 265 hand numbered copies, this being copy No: 17. I believe that it was printed around 1928. There are only a few known copies of this rare book and for what I could see, they usually have a fraid spine just like this one does. The book is solid and clean and has numerous hand tipped in photographs showing the ship before and after it sank on a reef in Japan in 1907. The ship was owned by James Hill of the Great Northern Railway fame who also owned a fleet of steamships. No lives were lost thanks to the rescue efforts of some nearby Japanese villagers. It has 58 pages plus a few blank pages in the back. There is some underlining in pencil on the inside but it is no big deal and could be erased. Have a good look and thanks for stopping by to see it. ***Items sold in Washington State will be charged 9% sales tax***
