OFFICIAL PHOTOS OF THE IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY, 1941-1942
Four pages mounted up with 42 official photographs of Japanese aircraft and ships, making up several groups of photographs arranged by action, each stamped with the calligraphy insignia of the Imperial Japanese Navy and text translating to "Official photos of the Imperial Japanese Navy, No.332." Each group of pictures comes with a Japanese sheet listing the subjects of the photographs.

These striking Japanese images include the Battles of Pearl Harbor, the Solomon Islands and the Coral Sea, and were distributed for sale to the Japanese public as a form of propaganda. They contain the impressive cockpit-shot views of Battleship Row under fire, Zero aircraft on takeoff from carriers, a rare shot of Japanese paratroopers dropping on the Dutch East Indies, a photo of Japanese submarines at port and various shots of Allied naval vessels under air attack.
